Sir William Butts
Not on view
Portrait of an elderly man with grey straight hair covering his ears, moustache and beard; bust-length to left; wearing a plumed hat with slashed rim, and fur stole over slashed doublet. According to New Hollstein, the suggestion that the sitter is Henry VIII's doctor, William Butts, is incorrect. However, the sitter resembles Charles Brandon, whose name is inscribed on the British Museum's impression (BM website).
