Image of a portrait of Henry VIII, based on the 1537 original by Hans Holbein the Younger. 

Holbein's original work was destroyed in a fire, during 1698, but because so many artists had copied it, the iconic representation of Henry VIII is still with us.

This version of the Holbein copy is maintained by the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
