Holbein "Dazzles"!

The new Holbein exhibition at the Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace brings Tudor history to life with some historic and magnificent artwork. Hans Holbein rapidly rose to royal favour at the court of King Henry VIII soon after his arrival from Germany. His stunning portraits of Sir Thomas More and the ill-fated Queen Anne Boleyn vividly transcend the centuries. Holbein's portraits inspired the next generation of artists in their depictions of the subsequent Tudor monarchs Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I.

This exhibition has been praised by the critics (5* "Dazzling" Evening Standard) and "Holbein’s evergreen drawings prove what an all-time great he was" by The Telegraph. It displays one of the most important surviving collections of his drawings, paintings, miniatures and book illustrations.

On at the Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday until 14 Apr 2024. It's a modest entrance fee of £19 for an adult and the ticket can be converted into a 1-year pass. Click on the link to find out more.
