Bajazet profferedthe emerald to ensure that his brotherwould remain in Papal custody, thussecuring his own unhindered accessionto the throne.

The work differsfrom the Royal Collection version inWilliams choice of footwear, depictinghim in red-heeled shoes. A traditionalsymbol of status which survives in theLouboutins of today, this sartorial choiceechoes the Parisian fashions of hiselegant foe, Louis XIV, whom Kneller alsopainted.
