Queen Sophie Amalie. The oval picture is painted in oil on copper by Abraham Wuchters, c. 1680.
The three ceiling paintings show the gods of earth, the heavens and the sea.
The dutch painter and engraver Abraham Wuchters was employed by the Academy of Sorø as "sketching master" in 1638. He painted several portraits of Christian IV.
Sophie Amalie became Queen of Denmark in 1648. She was the daughter of Duke George of Brunswick-Lüneburg, and in 1643 she was married to Frederik (III). Sophie Amalie was the mother of Christian V.
From 1675 to 1679 the Scanian War was fought with Sweden. But the final goal, to win back Scania, was not reached as no European state would allow both sides of Øresund to be ruled by the same power again.
