Alexander Roslin — Portrait of Gustav III of Sweden, 1772 : National Museum of Fine Arts, Stockholm.

King Gustav III of Sweden at whose instruction the English Garden at Haga was constructed.

Gustav III, by unknown painter, wearing the ekolsundsdräkt (Swedish National Costume). Love the power pink silk outfit, even the ermine lined cape is a nice touch, but that hat has to go!
