This portraitback to top
The handling of the paint in this portrait and the overall appearance of the picture suggests that the artist was a talented early seventeenth-century copyist who has faithfully replicated the earlier composition of Hans Holbein the Younger. The level of detail suggests that the artist had access to both a pattern and the original painting when producing this work.
