The Capel Family

by

Cornelius Johnson (Cornelius Janssen van Ceulen)

circa 1640

Appropriately, given the horticultural interests of the Capels, the family are pictured here posing in front of their formal garden at Little Hadham. The composition of Johnson's group is influenced by {van Dyck|mp4604}'s Charles I and Henrietta Maria with their two Eldest Children (Royal Collection, 1632).
