Which Catherine? Tudor Portrait Re-identified

Wearing the "wrong clothes" helped experts decide that the portrait wasn't of Henry VIII's last wife but was of his first.

National Portrait Gallery experts determined that the portrait, housed at Lambeth Palace, wasn't Catherine Parr but was actually Catherine of Aragon.  Technical analysis of the paint and the frame show that it was painted around the same time as an earlier portrait of Henry.  The two portraits will now be hung together in the National Gallery.
