#PortraitTuesday – The Hever Castle portraits of Anne Boleyn and Mary Boleyn

In this week’s #PortraitTuesday, I look at a beautiful pair of portraits found at Hever Castle of sisters Anne Boleyn and Mary Boleyn…

This is the sketch by Hans Holbein the Younger that the portrait of Anne Boleyn appears to be based on. It’s not known whether it is of Anne Boleyn, but Holbein did do a full-length portrait of her, we just don’t know where it is.
