Christina was queen of Sweden from 1632 to 1654. Artworks for Christina were purchased in the Netherlands by the agents Michael le Blon, Peter Spierinck and Harald Appelboom. David Beck and Abraham Wuchters worked as a painter at her court. In 1654 Christina received nine works by Rubens; many of these works proved to be a replica or copy. Christina also owned three portraits of Anthony van Dyck (Cavalli/Bjòrkman 2010).
