*The portrait itself, owned by the National Portrait Gallery, London, is entitled "Jean de Dinteville and Georges de Selve". It was painted by Hans Holbein the Younger in 1533 and is usually referred to as "The Ambassadors." At the ambassadors' feet is a distorted shape, or anamorphosis. The object represented becomes recognisable when the viewed at an acute angle, just above the lower left of the plane of the canvas, as when looking up, obliquely, to the hung portrait.
