Holbein the Younger By Arron Adams
eBook (ePub): $1.99

More > portraitists and most exquisite draftsmen of all time. Holbein was associated early on with the Basle publishers and their humanist circle of acquaintances.

Holbein: Detailed Paintings By Narim Bender
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Hans Holbein the Younger was German painter, one of the greatest portraitists and most exquisite draftsmen of all time. It is the artist's record of the court of King Henry VIII of England, as well... More > as the taste that he virtually imposed upon that court, that was his most remarkable achievement. Holbein's mature portraits present an intriguing play between surface and depth. The sitter's outlines and position within the frame are carefully calculated, while inscriptions applied on the surface in gold leaf lock the sitter's head into place. Juxtaposed with this finely tuned two-dimensional design are illusionist miracles of velvet, fur, feathers, needlework's, and leather. Holbein acted not only as a portraitist but also as a fashion designer for the court. This choice of work indicates Holbein's Mannerist concentration on surface texture and detail of design, a concern that in some ways precluded the incorporation of great psychological depth in his portraits.< Less
Holbein Coloring Book By Jeff Bacon

The Dance of Death, or Danse Macabre in French, is a late-medieval allegory on the universality of death: whether rich and powerful or poor and helpless, the dance we do with Death unites us all.... More > The earliest visual record is from the cemetery of the Church of the Holy Innocents in Paris (1424–25), although it no longer exists. Other artists, including Bernt Notke, Vincent of Kastav, John of Kastav, and Pieter Brueghel the Elder addressed the subject in their art. My favorite treatment, reproduced here, is the wood cuts designed by Hans Holbein the Younger (1497-1543) in 1526 while he was in Basel and cut by the accomplished Formschneider (block cutter) Hans Lützelburger. Each image has been carefully restored, to the best of my ability, and is suitable for framing either in the original black and white or with whatever fanciful colors you choose to include. I hope you enjoy the beauty of the work of Holbein and Lützelburger as reproduced here and that you enjoy many pleasant hours of coloring.< Less

More > portraits. Holbein was one of the greatest portraitists and most exquisite draftsmen of all time. It is the artist's record of the court of King Henry VIII of England, as well as the taste that he virtually imposed upon that court, that was his most remarkable achievement. He also produced religious art, satire 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. Holbein has also been described as a great "one-off" of art history, since he founded no school. After his death, some of his work was lost, but much was collected, and by the 19th century, Holbein was recognized among the great portrait masters.< Less
