Unlike the other portrait drawings by Holbein in the Royal Collection, this work has been extensively coloured and may have been produced as a finished work rather than as a study for a painting. When this work was made, Godsalve (c.1505 – 56) was responsible for overseeing trade in precious textiles in London.
