|The Blue Coat Hospital, with a painting by Verrio on the wall above|
It was a painting of Verrio's on the north wall of St. George's Hall, Windsor, which caught the eye of Jonathan Strange when he waited upon his Majesty there. It depicted both Edward III and John Uskglass as joint sovereigns of England, attended by their appropriate retinues. It was not done from the life of course, as Uskglass had withdrawn from England before Verrio ever arrived on these shores.
Verrio's somewhat posturing and florid art has lost favour with the modern age - a fate very incident to painters.
