Portrait of Hans von Zürich after Holbein with the sitter shown half-length facing front wearing wide soft hat and cloak doubled at the shoulders over thick undercoat. The sitter is believed to be a Swiss goldsmith who worked at the court of Henry VIII (a source that identifies him as the Swiss artist Hans Asper has not been confirmed).
