Hans Holbein the Younger, 1497/98-1543: The German Raphael
A key figure in the Northern Renaissance, Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/8-1543) is most remembered for his religious commissions and the portraits he created during his later years in London, such as The French Ambassadors and the many paintings and drawings made of Henry VIII and his wives.
