Come face-to-face with some of the most famous people in 16th-century in this major Hans Holbein exhibition.
One of the most talented artists of the 16th-century and a favourite of the Tudor royal court, Hans Holbein painted portraits of Henry VIII and other leading figures from the time, including Anne Boleyn and Thomas More. In this major exhibition, witness over 100 works of art by Holbein from the Royal Collection, charting his vibrant career and pivotal portraits, which were adopted as tools in dynastic negotiations, to cement friendships and mark important marriages.
Alongside the final oil masterpieces, over 40 preparatory portrait drawings taken during personal sittings will be displayed, revealing Holbein's artistic process and attempts to capture the essence of his subjects. Because of conservation reasons, these drawings cannot be on permanent display so this exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see Holbein's skills up close.
