"I found Wilson's explanations of the significance of Holbein's key paintings fascinating" (Sarah Bradford Daily Telegraph)
"This book is well overdue. For too long scholars have dismissed Hans Holbein as an artist who lacked a spiritual outlook, but Derek Wilson, by painstakingly reconstructing his life from contemporary records and the more subtle clues contained in his work has brilliantly redressed the balance...Highly readable and should become the standard work on the subject...The most accurate and vivid portrayal to date" (Alison Weir Literary Review)
"Wilson's characterisation of Holbein as a "truth seeker" seems incontrovertible" (Independent)
The first full biography of this incredible artist in over eighty-five years, published to coincide with a major Holbein exhibition in 2006 at Tate Britain.
