Jane Lister was the daughter of Ralph Shirley, an official of the court of Henry VII. Sir Richard Lister, an important official and Lord Chief Justice under Henry VIII and Edward VI, was her second husband. The drawing has been reworked by later hands than Holbein's. Art historian K. T. Parker detected Holbein's characteristic left-handed shading in the headdress and right sleeve; but he called the penwork "medium quality" and noticed strengthening of the chalk.
