Eric Ives, OBE:
'Lucy Churchill's brilliant achievement has brought us as close to the real Anne Boleyn as we shall ever be able to get'.
David Starkey, CBE:
'Lucy Churchill's reconstruction of The Moost Happi portrait medal is the best image we are ever likely to have of Anne Boleyn'.
'Through meticulous research Lucy Churchill has created an authentic replica of the medal of Anne Boleyn, as it would have looked originally. A must for anyone interested in Anne Boleyn'.
'Lucy Churchill's skill and craft has recreated a real woman, not a romantic heroine. This is Anne as her century saw her'.
The 1534 medal is the closest we get to the ârealâ Anne Boleyn, and itâs wonderful to have it reconstructed in all its glory. Lucy has done a wonderful job at bringing it to life.â
âLucy Churchillâs astonishing reconstruction of The Moost Happi portrait medal is one of my most treasured possessions. Itâs unquestionably the most true-to-life image of Anne Boleyn that we have.â
Ever since Lucy Churchill and I worked on a piece together on "What did Anne Boleyn Really Look Like?" I've been entranced with her work reviving the real Anne through this magnificent medal. A copy of the medal sit's proudly on my favourite bookshelp, a testament to the endurance of history over fiction. I'm so pleased to see this extraordinary work receiving the attention it deserves!"
"Lucy Churchill's stunning recreation of The Moost Happpi medal portrait of Anne Boleyn - the only contemporary likeness of her to survive - has brought into stark relief the face of a Queen in her most triumphant days. Churchill has skilfully recovered the face of a woman who captivated a kingdom and who beguiles us still."
"Lucy Churchillâs reconstruction of Anne Boleynâs 1534 âMost Happyâ medal is a welcomed and needed addition to studies about her portraiture. A must for anyone on âTeam Anneâ!"
