This chapter examines the place of heraldry in Tudor and early Stuart portraiture. It discusses the social context that made heraldic devices so important in the England of this era; the sort of craftsmen who painted the devices themselves; and the portraits that featured them. It concludes by suggesting the significance of heraldic painting for the native-English school of portraiture at this time.
