The Walker's larger-than-life portrait of Henry VIII is one of the gallery's most popular paintings. This book by Xanthe Brooke and David Crombie focuses on this most striking painting, which was derived from an original by Holbein. The book looks at the historical context in which the work was produced, the history of this painting and other Henry portraits, and examines the highly revealing technical investigation and conservation work the painting underwent.
"Thank you so much for quick despatch. History of Art student daughter delighted with quality of the book." (Mrs Bauld, Glasgow)
