The Weekly Portrait: Anne Boleyn

Because I am so enjoying Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, for more on which, watch this space...

  1. Having read 'The Other Boleyn Girl' by Philippa Gregory, it's interesting to see this portrait. It puts a face to the person that I've read about.

  2. Such an iconic portrait.

    Can't wait for your thoughts on Wolf Hall Hannah. I thought it was an amazing work, I'm tempted to read it again during these cold, dark nights by the fireside ...!

  3. I have just finished Wolf Hall, having savoured it over the past couple of weeks. So much to research further like the Hans Holbein portraits. I can see I must now revisit Hever too, it's many years since I was last there.

  4. I, too, look forward to your take on Wolf Hall. It has been on my radar screen since it was first published. Once I started The Other Boleyn Girl, I couldn't get my nose out of the book, so, I need to have expendable time for Wolf Hall.

  7. I almost picked up Wolf Hall the other day. It's out in paperback now and much less intimidating!
