acteristic. Jean de Bourbon, Comte d’Enghien. XVI Century. Eyes far

The eye-lids are modern, that is the eyes are set in deeply under 
the arch, but the eyes themselves are far apart, and the upper part of 
the nose is broad. 
Mary Queen of England. (National Portrait Gallery). 
It would seem that allowance might be made for the crudity of the 
portrait, but the naso orbital region is typical of the northern races 
during the XVI century. 
Holbein’s Duke of Norfolk. In the Royal Gallery at Windsor Castle. 
Eyes are more deep-set under the superorbital arch than is usual in 
portraits of the period, but the upper part of the nose is broad, and eyes 
are far apart. 
Henry VIII., attributed to Holbein but on doubtful authority. 
Broad flat nose, small eyes set far apart, eye-brows arching upward 
and outward. Observe the upper eye-lids in contrast to the Italian by 
Lorenzo Lotto, which shows the usual modern type of eye lid. 
Portrait of the Prothonotary Apostolic Juliano. (Lorenzo Lotto.) 
Modern type of face. Eyes deep set in under the superorbital arch and 
eye-brow. Upper part of the nose delicate and projecting. This type 
of face is occasionally, but only rarely met with north of the Alps 
during the early period. It is common enough in portraits of Italians. 
Portrait of a German scholar, by Holbein. Modern type, very
