Holbein at the Tudor Court


Hans Holbein the Younger stands as one of the most perceptive portrait artists of the Northern Renaissance. The drawings, paintings, and miniatures in the Royal Collection form one of the most important surviving groups of the artist’s work, including the majority of the portrait drawings from his time in England. His sensitive and lifelike depictions bring us face to face with some of the key figures of the Tudor court of King Henry VIII, including Anne Boleyn and Jane Seymour, statesman Sir Thomas More, and poet Sir Thomas Wyatt.

This book unveils the compelling story of Holbein’s rise from itinerant artist to esteemed painter at court. It also sheds light on the courtly dramas and rapid changes of the time that marked the lives of the men and women he portrayed.

Published to accompany the exhibition "Holbein at the Tudor Court" at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, London, in 2023, this book is a must-have for art enthusiasts and historians alike.
