  2. Man, this is deja vu... I've stormed into many a wrong office door and been stared at in just such a fashion.

  6. Though this artist's name is on the painting, the museum lists (http://www.npg.org.uk/collections/search/portrait.php?search=ap&npgno=665) the artist as Unknown. http://www.npg.si.edu/exhibit/britons/briton2.htm explains why and says John de Critz may have painted it.
