Holbein at the Tudor Court

"A major exhibition at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace will bring together over 100 works from Henry VIII's court, including drawings, paintings and miniatures by Hans Holbein the Younger drawn from the Royal Collection, one of the most important surviving groups of the artist's work.

Hans Holbein was one of the most talented artists of the 16th century and rose to become the most important artist in Tudor England. From his arrival in England in search of work, he was chosen to paint the portraits of Henry VIII, his family and leading figures, among them Anne Boleyn and Sir Thomas More. By his death, Holbein's work was as admired by his contemporaries as it is today. His portraits inspired the next generation of artists in their depictions of Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I."
