Hans Holbein the Younger Paintings

Hans Holbein the Younger (1497 – 1543) was a German-born artist during the 16th century. He specialized in portraiture, wood engravings, and murals. It is believed that his first art instructor was his father, recognized artist, Hans Holbein the Elder. Holbein the Younger had a keen eye for detail, giving his portraits an accuracy which was nearly unrivaled during his lifetime. He was also the court painter for the infamous King Henry VIII and painted multiple portraits of him.
