The Children of Christian II, King of Denmark
By Jan Gossaert
Oil on oak panel, 1526
These children are John, Dorothea and Christina, the children of the King of Denmark. It is thought that this portrait may have been commissioned shortly after the death of their mother, to mark her death, as the children are all dressed in mourning clothing.
