Hans Holbein the Younger

$ 2.49

Hans Holbein the Younger, a Northern Renaissance master generally regarded as one of the greatest portraitists of art history, came from a family of prominent artists. His stunning portraits are renowned for their unprecedented naturalism and precise draughtsmanship. Holbein’s most enduring achievement is his record of the court of King Henry VIII, which we continue to view through his eyes and unique mode of expression. The influence of his work on the course of English portraiture is immeasurable, as he created a portrait type that elevated the status of English portraiture to a European level for the first time. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Holbein’s complete works in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
