Portrait of a man dressed in 16th century costume, Oil on canvas 35x45 cm

To be more accurate, this is a portrait of Jeremy Northam as Sir Thomas More ( "The Tudors" serial)
You are invited to judge the similarity with the original , I assure you I`ve tried! 
There is a perception that artists, often unconsciously, give the portrayed people their own facial features or the facial features of their relatives. Take a look at the paintings of Rembrandt or Da Vinci. My Thomas More reminds me my father and I love it! ))
