The portraits of the Northern Renaissance are fascinating, and Hans Holbein‘s are some of the coolest. They have such a stark objectivity and faithfulness to reality. I especially like the intricate details in the elaborate clothing of his subjects.

  1. Beautiful.

  2. Shiny happy people, or No smiling please, we’re Flemish.
    Beautiful pictures though.

  3. A Portrait of an Unknown Women by Vanora Bennett is an interesting very fictional account of Hans Holbein’s time in England and his relationship with the family of Sir Thomas More.

  4. i love the baby. hahah

  5. I’m doing an analysis of Edward VI as a child and I used your image. Like your format.

  6. The St Thomas More alone is worth a trip to the Frick.
