The Jacobean era refers to a period in English and Scottish history that coincides with the reign of King James I (1603-1625). The Jacobean era succeeds the Elizabethan era and precedes the Caroline era, and specifically denotes a style of architecture, visual arts, decorative arts, and literature that is predominant of that period.

The word “Jacobean” is derived from the Hebrew name Jacob, which is the original form of the English name James.

The fine arts were dominated by foreign talent during the Jacobean era, as was true of the Tudor and Stuart periods in general
