Thomas Cromwell, Earl of Essex
after Hans Holbein the Younger
early 17th century (1533-1534)
This display will bring together a selection of the Gallery’s copies of Holbein’s portraits, all of which have undergone technical analysis as part of the Making Art in Tudor Britain project. This research has revealed new information about how and when they were made, and about the techniques that were used to ensure that the finished works skilfully evoked the originals.
