Hans Holbein the Younger (1498-1543), Portrait of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, 1533
Black and coloured chalks, pen and ink, watercolour on pink-primed paper, 25.1 × 20.1 cm, Royal Collection, Windsor Castle. This is a drawing of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey (1517–47). The inscription “Thomas Earl of Surry”, added later, is wrong. Howard was a poet and art lover who enjoyed sitting for portraits: another drawing of him by Holbein survives, as well as an oil portrait. Howard was executed in 1547, convicted of inappropriately using the Royal Arms of England.
