Item Details

An introduction to the work of Hans Holbein.Hans Holbein the Younger (c.1497-1543) is renowned for his incisive portraits of Northern Europe's courtiers, thinkers and statesmen, but his output was far more various, and included book illustration, large religious paintings and designs for jewellery and court fashions. This fine record of his career examines these varied aspects of his genius and beautifully illustrates the ways in which his miraculous technical accomplishment and attention to surface detail were married to acute observation of and empathy with his human subjects.Dr Helen Langdon, formerly a lecturer at the National Gallery, London, has provided this introduction to Holbein, and art historian James Malpas has selected additional illustrations and written detailed commentaries on each colour plate.Includes 79 illustrations, 48 in colour
