Henry Strangwish (died 1562) was a gentleman pirate from the English West Country. This painting was produced while he was in prison, probably the Tower of London. Strangwish was imprisoned for his piracy. The English inscription above Strangwish, shown holding a lute, reads: 'Strangwish, thus strangely depicted is One prisoner, for thother, hath done this/ Gerlin, hath garnisht, for his delight This woorck whiche you se, before youre sight'.
