Hans Holbein: The Artist in a Changing World

Hans Holbein: The Artist in a Changing World


Many of us would recognise Holbein’s work; to this day, Henry VIII’s image remains synonymous with the German painter’s 1536 portrait. Despite his memorable art, little is widely known about the artist himself. This book explores his work through the changes that occured in the world around him.

Known as one of the 16th-century’s most inventive artists, Holbein developed his technique during the emergence of humanism; a period of dramatic transformation affecting European society, culture, science and religion.

Author Jeanne Nuechterlein reconstructs what is known about the life of this elusive figure, offering fresh interpretations of visual and historical sources that have rarely been addressed.
