Anna Bvllen

Queen Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and mother of Queen Elizabeth I, was executed in 1536 on a charge of adultery. Wenceslaus Hollar's  etching of her is based on Holbein's drawing formerly in Lord Arundel's collection. The portrait is an example of Hollar's careful attention to the details of clothing and jewelry.


Gift of Mrs. John Farr Simmons in honor of Elizabeth Neimyer.
