This striking painting was part of Lord Burlington’s collection and hangs in its original position in the octagonal domed saloon at Chiswick House. It is a portrait of Muhammad Ibn Haddu, who was sent as an ambassador from Morocco to the Court of Charles II in 1681. He caused a sensation in London and became famous for his displays of horsemanship in Hyde Park.
