Restoration of the NPG's Anne Boleyn Portrait

An interesting photo, from the 1970’s, of the Anne Boleyn portrait in The National Portrait Gallery.

Prior to restoration, the panel was severely split down the center, and there was some damage to the paint surface.

The NPG did an excellent job in cleaning and repairing the portrait; particularly in covering up the crack, which is virtually unnoticeable today.
