The Tudors: Anne of Cleves ( 1515-1557) the Fortunate
Anne of Cleves
Growing up in Cleves under the parsimonious boot of her brother, Anne was lucky to have been picked at the bride of Henry VIII after he saw a deceptively pretty portrait of her by Holbein.
However, Henry did not find her attractive and refused to consummate the marriage. He was grossly fat and suffered from a stinking leg abscess so Anne probably got lucky when he divorced her after less than 7 months of marriage.
She lived the rest of her life in England in luxury, happiness and honor. Anne never married again.
Lenticular is a technique where one image “flips” to another using finely calibrated stripes of lenses. Most peoples first contact with lenticulars is the “blinking eye” prize in a box of Cracker Jacks. All Bourbon lenticulars measure 8 inches by 10 inches.
They are made to order and come in editions of 10.
