Art: Queen Anne by Artist Victor McGhee
Continuing my art cards series from famous art works. This is from Hans Holbein's "Anne of Cleves". Henry VIII commissioned him to do an accurate portrait of his future wife. Apparently to save his neck, he had to "embellish" her looks. Henry wasn't pleased at how she really looked, but spared Holbein. Anne kept her head as well.
