Book Description
This study brings together leading scholars from Europe and the United States to consider the art of Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/98–1543) from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. Generously illustrated and based on the most up-to-date research, the book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Holbein the Younger and his magnificent art. In chapters relating to artistic exchange, the contributors discuss what Holbein knew of French and Italian art and how he utilized this knowledge. Conservation and technical chapters examine the materials and techniques in the painting The Ambassadors and documentary evidence on a series of festival paintings on canvas. Two contributors examine the artist's woodcuts, particularly Dance of Death, in the light of contemporary political and theological...

Book Description
One of the greatest artists of sixteenth-century Europe, Hans Holbein the younger earned high acclaim for his work both in the city of Basel and in England for Henry VIII and other patrons. This book is the first to explore the full range of the artist’s English body of work as well as the relation of this work to the visual and material culture of Tudor England. Providing a detailed account of the paintings, drawings, and woodcuts that Holbein produced in England, the book demonstrates convincingly that that country was not as remote from a common European culture as is often assumed. Rather, it was an unmistakable part of that culture.

From Publishers Weekly
Ambitious and versatile, Holbein brought his Northern Renaissance skill to the English monarchy, as made evident in this sumptuous visual tour of the court of Henry VIII. The opulent portraits are rendered with lavish color, subtle modeling and precise detail. In several cases, the finished paintings are paired with their preliminary drawings, clear proof of Holbein’s virtuoso draftsmanship. Despite the scarcity of primary sources to document the artist’s professional dealings, it is clear that Holbein’s shrewd touch did not stop with the canvas. He survived the Reformation’s opposition to religious subject matter through the patronage of such intellectuals as Erasmus and Thomas More. After More’s execution, Holbein nimbly moved on, producing exquisite likenesses of the chancellor’s...

Book Review
This far-reaching study is the first comprehensive volume on Hans Holbein in 40 years. It is filled with color reproductions of the Renaissance artist's magnetic portraits, such as the well-loved rendering of the baby Edward, Prince of Wales, wielding his gold rattle like a scepter. Art historians will find the scholarship deep and subtle; all readers will enjoy stories such as the tale about Anne of Cleves, one of Henry VIII's prospective brides. Holbein enhanced her plain looks with regal robes of gold-encrusted velvet. The portrait persuaded Henry to propose; when Anne arrived, though, he called her a "fat Flanders mare." Holbein's reception at court turned chilly as a result: sic transit gloria pictoris. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hans Holbein

Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
As the subtitle of this intriguing speculative biography suggests, very little is known about Hans Holbein. Born in Augsburg in 1497, he encountered a Europe on the verge of great change. Perhaps he would have been less aware of this change had his father, a respected painter in his own right, not decided to send his sons away from Augsburg to study in the printing center of Basel, the Reformation's ground zero and, in Wilson's account, the formative influence on the 18-year-old newcomer's life. Wilson (A Tudor Tapestry) portrays such eminent figures as Erasmus, Zwingli and Luther, whose ideas were shaking Europe, and highlights their background in political and economic forces. The author's detective spirit is bent on restoring details effaced by time. Despite the paucity of documentation about his subject,...


Henry VIII Revealed: The Legacy of Holbein's Portraits

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The portly figure of Henry VIII depicted by Holbein may be very familiar, but this book reveals much more about the portrait, the sitter, the artist, and his workshop. It gathers together and analyzes the several copies and variants of Holbein’s Whitehall cartoon of Henry VIII, more than one of which is by the only significant painter immediately after Holbein in England, Hans Eworth. The book reveals for the first time the results of extensive technical analysis and historical research undertaken on surviving versions of the portrait in the Walker Art Gallery, Chatsworth, Petworth, Trinity College, Cambridge, and elsewhere. It throws light not only on Henry VIII but on the Tudor court and on courtiers who, for their own purposes, wished to keep his memory alive after his death. The book explores how and when the...

Book Description
Hans Holbein the Younger: The Basle Years, 1515-1532 Christian Müller, Editor Holbein is perhaps best known as the court painter of Henry VIII, but before he moved to England, this sixteenth-century German artist was a celebrated portraitist and painter of religious scenes and altar pieces. Focusing on a particularly fertile period in Holbein’s career, this book features paintings, drawings and sketches that the artist completed in Basle, Switzerland. There, Holbein’s talent blossomed as he was awarded numerous commissions to paint the leading figures of the Reformation, including Erasmus of Rotterdam. In fact, it was Erasmus who recommended him for a position in London. Scholarly essays and a brief biography reflect the latest research on the life and work of this important artist. Christian...
