Sometimes our Supporting Artists are given characters straight out of the pages of history, like this one. He is representing Abd el-Ouahed ben Messaoud, the Moroccan ambassador to Elizabeth I. We cheated a bit—the ambassador arrived in 1600 and his portrait was painted to commemorate the event. But Elizabethan England was a culturally diverse place, and London and the court had many foreign residents. We couldn’t resist changing history a little bit! #behindthescenes with @adiscoveryofwitchestv #ADOWS2.
