Hans Holbein der Jüngere Hans Holbein der Jüngere

Hans Holbein der Jüngere

   •   Late Renaissance   •   Wikipedia: Hans Holbein der Jüngere
383 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #105
Hans Holbein the Younger (1497 or 1498 - 29.11.1543) celebrated the beauty of the world and the fascination of knowledge. At the same time, Holbein, the court painter of King Henry VIII at the time, recalled the transience of earthly things.

Nuremberg was the hometown and the determined and highly talented painter had a broader view of the bigger picture at the beginning of the 16th century: after the father Hans Holbein the Elder had given him the technical tools, Hans Holbein the Younger initially went to Basel. There he acquired civil and freedom rights and soon became a protagonist of the Swiss art scene. Holbein took lessons in writing and Latin - but mostly he painted everything there was to paint. His repertoire consisted of portraits, wall decorations and religious paintings, book illustrations and designs for jewelry and glass windows. However, he diligently deprived himself of many job options - and in Basel the world became too small for him.

Holbein portrayed Erasmus of Rotterdam several times, Erasmus belonged to the closer circle of friends of Holbein. Equipped with a letter of reference from the humanist, addressed to Lord Chancellor Thomas More, Holbein traveled to London via Antwerp in 1526. Thomas More received Holbein in a friendly manner and commissioned him with a large-format family painting. Erasmus of Rotterdam was assured by Mores that he wanted to promote the young painter in England as hard as possible. So Holbein the Younger soon painted opulent decorative pictures for the lavish festival architecture of Henry VIII and thus repeatedly demonstrated his great mastery. Heinrich Tudor was thrilled. At the time, he is supposed to have determined that seven peasants can easily be made into seven counts, but none of the counts into a single Holbein - and Holbein made portrait after portrait of the members of the royal court. At that time, Holbein was still emotionally connected to Basel. But in 1539 he broke all bridges after a stay in Basel, went back to Heinrich's court and was immediately appointed court painter.

Whether Katharina von Aragón, Jane Seymour, Anna von Kleve or Catherine Howard: Hans Holbein the Younger naturally also portrayed the ranks of the king's wives and Heinrich. Nevertheless, the monumental painting "The Messengers" was to become the master's most important work. The picture of friendship portrays the French diplomats Georges de Selve and Jean de Dinteville, both sensitive minds with a penchant for the liberal arts. A component of the painting is a cleverly hidden skull, which is synonymous with the ambiguity in Holbein's work: on the one hand, he celebrates the grandiose beauty of the world with his art, on the other hand, he recalls the transience of things around. So the realistic effect changes to a surface of almost cryptic allusions. This is an aspect that continues to make Holbein's work so interesting today. In 1543, the year of his death, Hans Holbein painted the portrait of the spiritual and royal personal physician John Chambers. This painting reflects determination and spirituality in a particularly subtle way. On November 29, 1543, Hans Holbein the Younger died in London. © Meisterdrucke
