There are few contemporary portraits of Anne Boleyn, and this painting derives from an earlier version. She was described as having a long neck, wide mouth and with 'eyes which were black and beautiful'. This portrait has recently undergone structural conservation following a successful fundraising campaign and the generous support of public donations.
