Katherine of Aragon in Art

Apparently she was used as a model in religious paintings. According to "Madame Guillotine": "Let’s look at some pictures of her in her golden haired youth and think about what a shame it is that no pictures of her in her middle years, when she was an adored young Queen seem to have survived."

Gareth has compiled some posts about the 525th anniversary of her birth, HERE. Share

All married women wore coifs, too.

I must admit, I never knew she was used as a model in religious paintings. I have to say, though, how much I admire her. Of all of Henry's wives, she was the one who stood up to him in principle and in love, and never wavered from either no matter how badly he abused her. She was certainly a picture of Christ's love of His church, wasn't she?

Yes, she was, Christine. I agree!
