Unidentified painter
15th-century portrait painting of women, with Unspecified, Unidentified, Unknown or Anonymous artist.
English: Elizabeth Woodville (1437-1492), Queen Consort of Edward IV of England.
The portrait of her shown here is probably a multiple-generation copy of one taken from life. The College has several versions in differing states. She is shown posed in the high fashion of the day, with strained back hair and a partial veil.

QC portrait 88.

Judging by the patterns on the shoulders and cuffs, QC 88 shares a common ancestry with Royal Collection RCIN 404744, but they each differ from Royal Collection RCIN 406785 in ways that the other does not, so it is unlikely that one is a copy of the other. In the necklace brooch, QC 88 has inverted jewel colours, and the centre-piece is set diamond-fashion. It has a full-size chest brooch, and a full set of rings.
Source/Photographer Found on — image taken of one of three original paintings at Windsor; Queen's College, Cambridge; or Ashmolean Museum, Oxford[1]
