Description:

The &quotTapestry Hangings&quot refers to the tapestries commissioned by Lord Howard in 1592, who had served as Lord High Admiral at the time of the Spanish Armada. The Dutch naval artist Hendrick Cornelisz Vroom created ten tapestries to commemorate the British victory. When completed in 1595 they initially hung in Lord Howard&#8217s Chelsea manor. They were then moved, in 1616, to his new London residence, Arundel House. In 1801 they were hung in the Court of Requests until they were all destroyed by fire in 1834.
