Hans Holbein the Younger (c. 1497[1] – between 7 October and 29 November 1543) was a German artist and printmaker who worked in a Northern Renaissance style. He is best known as one of the greatest portraitists of the 16th century. Holbein travelled to England in 1526 in search of work. By 1535, he was King's Painter to King Henry VIII.
