  • "Best known today as a portraitist, Holbein's achievements in fact cover a broader range. Susan Foister discusses in full his decorative paintings and murals, now lost, his designs for goldsmiths, and works that can be associated with the English Reformation. She also provides a detailed account of Holbein's artistic techniques and practices, and his status as a court painter. Finally, she sets Holbein's portraits in their contemporary context, examining his vivid likenesses of men and women from the Tudor court, as well as of Henry VIII and his queens."--Jacket.
