Artist's description:

Painted as an illustration assignment, this is an expressive painting of Anne Boleyn, with historical details to add drama to the visual story.
The ravens in her hair are a reference to descriptions of her dark hair and bewitching qualities. The split cross around her neck refers to her influence on Henry VIII's split from the Roman Catholic Church. The "B"necklace around her neck was a symbol of her family.
She is wearing clothing she was described to have worn at her coronation, and is sitting on a coronation chair.
Her "self-crowning" is a reference to her ambition to be more than a mistress. The background design contains the letters "HA" together, and was said to have been the wallpaper that decorated the king and queen's private chamber while they were together.
The black space where the ravens cut across her neck is a subtle reference to her eventual be-heading.

Painted in acrylic with iridescent acrylic on board. Comes framed in a 2" wide ornate frame with a silver finish.
