Historic portrait of the real Pocahontas in London, age 21, dressed as the Christian lady she had become.
She died within months. This portrait hangs in the National Portrait Gallery
of the Smithsonian
, in Washington, D.C..
This painting is a later copy of an engraving made during her
London visit of 1616. It flatters and Europeanizes her more than does the
original engraving, which failed to capture her celebrated allure.
