Holbein, Hans

Holbein, Hans, der berühmte Maler und Formenschneider, war 1498, wahrscheinlich in Augsburg, geboren, genoß den Unterricht seines Vaters, den er nach Basel begleitete, und reiste dann nach London, wo er am Hofe Heinrich's VIII. die günstigste Aufnahme fand. Das größte Verdienst seiner Schöpfungen ist die treuste Nachahmung der Natur; seine Portraits sind voll Geist und Leben, seine historischen Darstellungen mit gleicher Vollendung entworfen und ausgeführt; Deutschland und England besitzen Holbein's trefflichste Werke. Unübertroffen noch heute sind seine Leistungen im Holzschnitt; sein Todtentanz ist davon die berühmteste. Er starb an der Pest 1554.
