Engraving of  Anne of Cleves, fourth wife of Henry VIII, by Vermuelen, printer and engraver, who worked in Antwerp from 1644-1708. He transposed paintings into engravings for the public audience.  His  "portraits" of members of the Henrician and Elizabethan courts bear little if any resemblance to the portraits painted from life over two centuries earlier. This portrait, a distortion of the Holbein, shows a worn, haggard face in line with the cruel myth that Henry rejected her for her looks.
