Item description for Hans Holbein the Younger: The Years in Basel, 1515-1532 by Hans Holbein...

Hans Holbein the Younger: The Basle Years, 1515-1532 Christian Mller, Editor

Holbein is perhaps best known as the court painter of Henry VIII, but before he moved to England, this sixteenth-century German artist was a celebrated portraitist and painter of religious scenes and altar pieces. Focusing on a particularly fertile period in Holbein's career, this book features paintings, drawings and sketches that the artist completed in Basle, Switzerland. There, Holbein's talent blossomed as he was awarded numerous commissions to paint the leading figures of the Reformation, including Erasmus of Rotterdam. In fact, it was Erasmus who recommended him for a position in London. Scholarly essays and a brief biography reflect the latest research on the life and work of this important artist.

Christian Mller is a curator at the Kupferstichkabinett in Basle, Switzerland.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hans Holbein the Younger: The Years in Basel, 1515-1532?

disappointing  Oct 31, 2007
This is a really rather disappointing book, and one of those internet purchases I would definately return were it not that the postage would cost more than the refund! There are very few paintings (did Holbein really paint so little during his years in Basel?), and most of this terribly thick tome is filled with rather gloomy drawings and prints. This might be something for the scholar but certainly not if you are looking for a visual treat or to see lots of new paintings.
