Description
The German artist Hans Holbein the Younger (c. 1497–1543) was one of the most versatile and admired painters of the Northern Renaissance and the son of Hans Holbein the Elder. In this monograph, illustrated with more than 260 black and white and color reproductions and detail views, the authors illuminate the artistic and cultural influences that affected the younger Holbein's career. He was a hugely ambitious artist, making designs for jewelry, stained glass, and woodcuts; painting major altarpieces and portraits; and creating monumental decorative schemes for private houses and civic buildings. In his portrait commissions, Holbein sought to rival the greatest masters of Germany and Italy, particularly Dürer and Mantegna, and by the time he reached England, he both drew and painted numerous unrivaled likenesses of leading courtiers, merchants, and diplomats, including his celebrated double portrait The Ambassadors.

"Like only a few other painters in history, Holbein made the human likeness seem to erase the distance between his time and ours.... This readable, scholarly book not only situates Holbein carefully in his own time but teaches us how to read his paintings and prints in depth."—SFChronicle
