Update on the Identification of John Dee as the Naked Angel Censored from a Portrait of the Prince of Wales

The most popular post on this blog concerns John Dee and his possible identification as the naked angel censored beneath overpaint for centuries in a portrait by Robert Peake.

Recently while exploring the Folger Shakespeare Library Digital Gallery I came across a portrait of Mr. Dee I had never seen before (below).  It was created in 1659, and I thought I'd include it here along with a link back to the original post.
