Holbein - Capturing Character in the Renaissance

Published on December 22, 2021

The 16th-century German artist Hans Holbein the Younger created portraits for a wide range of patrons, including scholars, statesmen, and courtiers, in Switzerland and England. Holbein’s drawings and paintings, enriched by inscriptions and evocative objects, offer richly detailed visual statements of personal identity. Explore the Renaissance culture of scholarship, self-definition, luxury, and wit in the first major presentation of Holbein’s art in the United States.

The exhibition runs from October 19, 2021 - January 9, 2022 at the Getty Center 1200 Getty Center Dr, Los Angeles, CA, 90049.
