Hans Holbein the Younger, Sir Thomas More, 1526-7 is on display in Hull as part of a five year partnership with the Ferens Art Gallery, entitled Masterpieces in Focus from the Royal Collection. Holbein's sensitive portrait of Sir Thomas More is a particularly fine example of the group of his portrait drawings in the Royal Collection, held in the Print Room at Windsor Castle.  The sitter was significant to Holbein because he probably lodged in More's house in Chelsea throughout his first English sojourn.
