Portrait of a Lady by Hans Holbein 1543 not sure why the website describes it as Princess Elizabeth when the caption at the bottom of the picture clearly says 'a lady'

    Good point! And this portrait looks nothing like the other portraits of the queen from her early years!

  • Cinnabar Drake

    This is why: http://artintheblood.typepa... Someone wrote the caption as well, and could be wrong. It's not part of the painting.

    Cinnabar--thank you for the interesting article! interesting to read the history of thought about this piece. For what it's worth, caption aside, I really don't think it's Elizabeth or Holbein, but that's what makes horse races.

Hans Holbein The Younger -self portrait Hans Holbein was a German artist who gained fame in London, painting in the Northern Renaissance style. Although his early English patrons, Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell and Anne Boleyn all met the same fate in the Tower of London, Holbein, by 1535 was royal painter to King Henry VIII himself. This portrait of Sir Thomas More, who sided with the Catholic Church against Henry VIII, was painted in 1527.

Another interesting contemporary costume study, this time by Hans Holbein the Younger.  It’s very unusual to see women’s shoes in Medieval and Renaissance artwork, making information about them scarce.
