early 17th century, based on a work of 1532-1533
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.
