Holbeinby Helen Langdon, James Malpas
Hans Holbein the Younger ( c.1497-1543) is renowned for his incisive portraits of Northern Europe's courtiers, thinkers and statesmen, but his output was far more various, and included book illustration, large religious paintings and designs for jewellery and curt fashions.
