About Hans Holbein: The Artist In A Changing World

Product Description Immensely skillful and inventive, Hans Holbein molded his approach to art-making during a period of dramatic transformation in European society and culture: the emergence of humanism, the impact of the Reformation on religious life, and the effects of new scientific discoveries. Most people have encountered Holbein’s work—think of King Henry VIII and Holbein’s memorable portrait springs to mind, forever defining the Tudor king for posterity—but little is widely known about the artist himself. This overview of Holbein looks at his art through the changes in the world around him. Offering insightful and often surprising new interpretations of visual and historical sources that have rarely been addressed, Jeanne Nuechterlein reconstructs what we know of the life of this elusive figure, illuminating the complexity of his world and the images he generated. Review " Hans Holbein: The Artist in a Changing World is not a biography. Instead, Nuechterlein offers a compelling thematic account of Holbein’s creative life that emphasizes the steadiness of his artistic gaze as he navigated three decades of extraordinary political, religious, and intellectual turbulence." , History Today “Nuechterlein presents the first modern overview of Holbein’s entire achievement and examines his responses to major changes in contemporary belief systems—Renaissance humanism, the Protestant Reformation, and new scientific and geographical discoveries—all explained with admirable clarity. Analyzing Holbein’s work across Germany, Switzerland, and England, from tiny woodcuts and metalcuts to full-size altarpieces, she brilliantly brings into focus not only Holbein’s extraordinary creative responses to change but also the people for whom and with whom he worked, illuminating Northern European art and society at a crucial turning point.” -- Susan Foister, deputy director and curator, National Gallery, London About the Author Jeanne Nuechterlein is a reader in the Department of History of Art at the University of York. She is the author of Translating Nature into Art: Holbein, the Reformation, and Renaissance Rhetoric and deputy editor of the journal Art History.
