HOGARTH, William Engraved by T. Cook
King Henry the Eighth & Anna Bullen.
This famous print shows Henry the VIII talking at court to Anne Boleyn, with a slightly despairing Cardinal Wolsey at right of picture. It is thought that the print was Hogarth’s comment on the relationship of the Prince of Wales with Harriet Vane. The painting on which this print is based was hung for many years in Vauxhall Gardens.
