This well executed and highly decorative portrait was painted by a talented, but unidentified English artist in the late 18th century and is almost certainly after a portrait in the manner of Hans Holbein the Younger ca. 1500 of a Lady of the House of York, said to be Anne of York.
Anne of York (2 November 1475 – 23 November 1511) was born in the Palace of Westminster, London, as the fifth daughter of King Edward IV of England and his wife, Elizabeth Woodville. On 4 February 1495, Anne was married to Thomas Howard (later 3rd Duke of Norfolk) at Westminster Abbey.
Hans Holbein the Younger (c. 1497 – 1543)painted a portrait of Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk, now in the Royal Collection, Windsor.
