Thank you for the photos Tudorfan. I believe the second portrait is from the one that shows Henry with his children. So few of the Tudor artifacts are still in existence so any portraits are valuable.
You're welcome! Glad you liked them.
Actually that was an earlier portrait that Henry commissioned, and although his third wife, Jane Seymour, was dead by this time, he resurrected her for this portrait. Elizabeth is all the way to the right, and Mary to the left, and his favorite child and beloved son, Edward, is by his side. Talk about making your female children feel inferior.
The above second portrait I posted is Elizabeth by herself, in her bedroom, with a large book which shows her dedication to her education. The artist is unknown, but it is thought to be by William Scrots.
