Corneille Metsys - Henry VIII.jpg

This facsimile reproduces an engraved portrait of King Henry VIII in the Elizabethan Club. It represents the king as he appeared in 1544, near the end of his life. The engraving illustrates the earliest period of the art in England and was executed by Cornelius Metzys (1511?-1550?), son of the Flemish painter Quentin Metzys.
