"Around 1538 - 1540, Henry commissioned from Girolama de Treviso a painting of the Four Evangelists stoning the Pope [below], which was executed in grisaille highlighted in gold. It hung in the King's privy chamber at Hampton Court, outside his bedchamber, and is the only known surviving picture, other than portraits and the great narrative paintings, from Henry's collection. Treviso had been one of Raphael's students in Rome before working for the Gonzaga tat the court of Mantua. Henry retained him not only for his artistic talent, but also for his skills as a military engineer and architect. The King's enhanced prestige had also given impetus to his programme of building, restoring and acquiring houses, since the royal palaces were now to be the magnificent, glittering setting for the New Monarchy and craftsmen like Treviso would be much in demand" ~ Alison Weir's Henry VIII and his court
