Jan Baptist Xavery Bust of Princess Anne of Hannover (1709-1759)
On view in Room 16
Xavery was an Antwerp sculptor who settled in The Hague in 1721, where he became court painter. In 1736, he made this bust of Princess Anne of Hannover, daughter of King George II of England and wife of stadholder Willem IV. A couple of years earlier, Xavery had made a bust of the stadholder himself, which is also exhibited in this room.
