Not on view

This is one of three busts that were in a room above the Holbein Gate, Whitehall, until 1759. The others represent Henry VII (Victoria and Albert Museum, London) and a cleric traditionally identified as John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester (36.69), but that identification is now questioned.
