Summary

Title

Portrait of Prince Edward, later King Edward VI of England

Description

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:

PARVVLE PATRISSA, PATRIÆ VIRTVTIS ET HÆRES

ESTO, NIHIL MAIVS MAXIMVS ORBIS HABET.
GNATVM VIX POSSVNT COELVM ET NATVRA DEDISSE,
HVIVS QVEM PATRIS, VICTVS HONORET HONOS.
ÆQVATO TANTVM, TANTI TV FACTA PARENTIS,
VOTA HOMINVM, VIX QVO PROGREDIANTVR, HABENT
VINCITO, VICISTI. QVOT REGES PRISCVS ADORAT
ORBIS, NEC TE QVI VINCERE POSSIT, ERIT.
Ricard Morysini Car.

English: Little one, emulate thy father and be the heir of his virtue; the world contains nothing greater. Heaven and earth could scarcely produce a son whose glory would surpass that of such a father. Do thou but equal the deeds of thy parent and men can ask no more. Shouldst thou surpass him, thou hast outstript all, nor shall any surpass thee in ages to come. By Sir Richard Morison.
