Do you think this is a portrait of a rich man or a poor man? How can you tell – what clues are in the picture? The portrait is of Sir Henry Unton who was a famous soldier and diplomat in the 16th century. He was made a knight by the king for being very brave in battle. We do not know who the artist is who painted the portrait, though it looks like the style of a Belgian artist called Hieronimo Custodi.
