This portrait appears to result from a sitting from the life and shows Norfolk at the age of 27. The positioning of the figure and meticulously painted facial characteristics, with the mouth very slightly open to reveal two front teeth, provide a strong sense of personal presence. Fragments of an old inscription can be seen at the top right, which date the picture to 1565.
