Hans Holbein the Younger is one of the most remarkable portrait Masters of all time.

This lecture series will give us an in-depth knowledge of the great Holbein. We will study his deeply penetrating portraits of his contemporaries. At the same time we will learn about the context in which these subjects lived: the uncertain times of the turbulent 16th century. We will meet great

figures of the Reformation and Humanist movements, men and women who influenced history: Erasmus, Thomas More, Dürer, Gutenberg, Henry the VIII, Catherine Howard, and many more.
