The nation's much-loved portrait of Anne Boleyn is in dire need of a medieval makeover...
Custodians The National Portrait Gallery have raised the alarm after discovering the dire straits of this picture - with vertical cracking across the panel causing paint-loss.
The painting has had to be removed from public view until £4000 can be raised to pay for vital conservation work.
The Gallery has already raised £1096 during the first three weeks of the appeal.
To help them achieve their target The Tyndale Society will make a contribution for every copy of Howard Brenton's 'Anne Boleyn' which we sell to our Members and Friends in our New Year Special Offer.
