In this exhibition you can see paintings of unidentified persons. Some of the painting are thought to be of famous people from history such as Queen Elizabeth I, the young pretender to the throne Lady Arabella Stuart, and the poet and courtier Sir Thomas Overbury. But, these suggestions are much debated. Take a look yourself and make up your own opinion.
The exhibition can be seen in the National Portrait Gallery in London between December 3rd, 2011 and July 22nd, 2012.
