Hans Holbein der Jüngere

419 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #105
Late Renaissance   •   Hans Holbein der Jüngere @ Wikipedia

Hans Holbein (1497 or 1498 to 1543) comes from a significant family of artists. His father , his uncle and one of his brothers were also painters. Born in Augsburg, Holbein comes to Basel in 1515, where his father expects orders for illustrations in the thriving Buchdruck.

Further stations lead Hohlbein to France (1523) and from 1528 to England, where he was appointed court painter to Henry VIII in 1536. Among his most famous paintings are the portraits of the humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam, they are representative of his strikingly precise representation of the human Antlizes as an expression of his inner being.

The depiction of the dead Christ, created in the years 1521/1522, which can be seen in the Basel Art Museum under the title "The Body of Christ in the Grave", is disturbing. This almost life-size lying body symbolizes the unimaginable torment of the Crucified, like hardly any other representation. © Meisterdrucke
