Hans Holbein - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Hans Holbein the Younger (c. 1497 – between 7 October and 29 November 1543) was a German artist and printmaker who worked in a Northern Renaissance style. He is best known as one of the greatest portraitists of the 16th century. He also produced religious art, satire, and Reformation propaganda, and made a significant contribution to the history of book design. He is called "the Younger" to distinguish him from his father, Hans Holbein the Elder, an accomplished painter of the Late Gothic school.

The Ambassadors

€37.00
This masterpiece of Holbein may have become more famous for what it does not reveal than for what it gives to see: a little ahead of the ground there is an anamorphosis positioned diagonally - a detail whose perspective is distorted and becomes legible only when viewed from the left and from below, then a skull appears. 1533, National Gallery, London, UK
