National Portrait Gallery

National Portrait Gallery – London

We spent the morning at the National Portrait Gallery in London and saw the Tudor Gallery.

I particularly liked the portraits of Anne Boleyn. I showed Nana the most famous one of Anne Boleyn which is below:

by Unknown artist, oil on panel, late 16th century (circa 1533-1536)

by Unknown artist, oil on panel, late 16th century (circa 1533-1536) NPG

Then I closed Nana’s eyes and took her to see the other portrait of her, which was Anne Boleyn after she had had children! She was looking a bit scary!

It made Nana jump when she saw it!

  1. A very interesting period the Tudors. Ann Boleyn was supposed to be quite beautiful but these paintings make her look rather unattractive.
