Portrait Friday

This week's Portrait Friday is Holbein's famous Anne of Cleves, because I've been feeling very Tudor-ish lately! Last year when I was at the Louvre, I spent the morning seeing the "highlights" (Mona Lisa, check; Venus de Milo, check; David's Coronation of Napleon, check--btw, that one has some seriously fab gowns to stare at!), then I had lunch and just wandered through some of the quieter galleries. It was wonderful, especially when I turned a corner and saw this staring back at me. I hadn't even known it was at the Louvre. I said (too loudly) "Ohmigosh, it's Anne of Cleves!" and rushed over to it. It's gorgeous.
