Hans Holbein

Hans Holbein

Holbein, Hans (c. 1497-1543). Painter. It is hardly an exaggeration to suggest that our visual image of Henry VIII and his courtiers is derived from Holbein's portraits. Born the son of an Augsburg artist, Holbein paid two visits to England, a short one 1526-7 and a longer one 1532-43. On the first occasion he brought with him introductions from Erasmus to Sir Thomas More, and painted a celebrated More family portrait. On his next visit his patron More was in disfavour, but Holbein received many commissions, and entered the service of the king, for whom he painted a family reconstruction, showing Henry, his parents, and Jane Seymour. An early commentator wrote of Holbein: ‘he is not a poet but an historian.’
