|Title||Portrait of Prince Edward, later King Edward VI of England|
English: Holbein's portrait of Prince Edward is very probably the one given to Henry VIII as a New Year's Gift on 1 January 1539, recorded as being "By Hanse Holbyne a table of the pictour of the pnce [Prince's] grace". In return, Holbein received a silver-gilt covered cup made by Cornelis Heyss. It has been objected that this might not be the same picture, because the prince looks older than his fifteen months; but most commentators think this unlikely.
The following text is inscribed across the bottom:
Deutsch: Edward Tudor, von 1547 bis zu seinem Tod 1553 als Edward VI. König von England und Irland, als Kleinkind; die rechte Hand zum Segensgruß erhoben, in der linken eine goldene Rassel, die einem Zepter gleicht.
|Medium||oil and tempera on oak|
|Dimensions||56.8 × 44 cm (22.4 × 17.3 in)|

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain". For details, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
