Sir James Linton was a painter who specialised in historical figures. The subject of this painting is Queen Elizabeth of Hungary, a 13th century saint well-known for her charity. She is symbolically represented by her red dress as well as the portrait of Virgin Mary and infant Jesus on the right. Here, the saint is pictured in her daily life as a noble woman, posing in front of a wealthy background while the court painter is sketching her silhouette at the foreground.
