The life and work of German-born artist Hans Holbein, whose photographically realistic portraits captured imaginations across Europe and led to his appointment as official artist to Henry VIII. Famed for his paintings of Erasmus, Sir Thomas More and the French ambassadors to the English court, he compromised his integrity for once with the picture of Anne of Cleves that prompted the king to propose to the `Flanders mare'.
