Thomas or Henry?
I see that MsSquirrly entitled this sketch as Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, BUT the sketch itself has the name Thomas, Earl of Surrey on there. So who is it? Thomas or Henry? Did Norfolk have a second son named Thomas?

Is this Mary Tudor, Duchess of Suffolk?
Scroll four rows of pictures down and view the image titled "Portrait of Mary Tudor" from the 'Memoirs of the Court of Queen Elizabeth,' published in 1825.
Could someone who is familiar with the Holbein portrait of an 'Unknown Lady" formerly known as Catherine Howard aka possibly Elizabeth Seymour (sister to Queen Jane, who married Cromwell's son) and see if this could be an 1825 misidentification copy or mis-labeled on page? It looks like an amateur copy of the famous Holbein seen here:
Does anyone have any updated or current information? Who is this lady? Thanks!

Holbein - realistic painter or not?
Holbein's portaits seem very realistic to me: he doesn't make all his sitters look gorgeous and adds a bit of personnality to each portrait. At a time were flattery and symbolism were predominent in court portraits - they were mainly political - Holbein's approach is a rarity. He seems however to have gone wrong once...Annne of Cleves. Maybe that proves that even the most realistic portrait is only a fixed image and cannot capture the essence of the sitter. Or does this misadventure prove that Holbein was not a realistic painter after all? What do you think?
