Full image caption

This print of Henry VIII was made from a copy of the Holbein mural in Whitechapel Palace, destroyed by a fire. Hans Holbein the Younger was born into a family of artists in Augsburg in Germany. His painting combined the most outstanding techniques of both the Italian and the Northern Renaissance. In 1532 Holbein settled in London and became Court Painter. His portraits of the leading figures of Henry VIII's court are one of the most important surviving records of powerful individuals such as the King.
