Portrait of Sir Thomas Wyatt. Oil on panel, 31.7 cm diameter, National Portrait Gallery, London.This oil portrait of Wyatt in a medallic profile composition derives from a lost drawing or painting by Hans Holbein the Younger of about 1540. Holbein's woodcut for Leland's Naenia presumably follows the original version. Four 16th-century copies by other hands survive, of which this is one of two at the National Portrait Gallery (for the other, see "Other versions" below).Thomas Wyatt (1503?-42) was a diplomat and a gifted poet who introduced the Italian sonnet form to England. He was arrested after the fall of Anne Boleyn, whom he had admired in poetry, but he recovered to become ambassador to the Emperor Charles V before being arrested again in 1541. Holbein also designed goldsmiths' work for Wyatt. References
