    Death, the great leveller, lets no one escape. Though only about 28 years old, he would achieve remarkable success in England. Only in that sense, however, is his achievement finally limited. This painting was the Holbein book example in northern European art Holbein book a large group portrait in which the figures are not shown kneeling—the effect of which is to suggest the individuality of the sitters rather than impiety. The two men were on a tricky and ultimately unsuccessful diplomatic mission to heal the rift between Henry VIII and the Church of Rome, hence its plural name, "The Ambassadors". It seems to have been Holbein's practice to make a very careful drawing of his subjects though no full drawings for any of these portraits survive and to then produce the painted portrait without the sitter being present.

    So Holbein was working close to the heart of the accelerating movement for Church reform. In these and other examples, the artist revealed his Holbein book with plant, animal, and decorative accessories. In the s, Holbein was busy trying to earn a living in Basel, painting murals and portraits, designing stained glass windows, and illustrating books. David Hockney has speculated in the Hockney-Falco thesis that Holbein used a concave mirror to project an image of the subject onto the drawing surface. He produced the occasional portrait, and made his international mark with portraits of the famous humanist Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam.

    He is best known as one of the greatest portraitists of the 16th century. The Holbein Holbein book no doubt first studied with their father in Augsburg; they both also began independent work about in BaselSwitzerland. He records also that a member of the More family on de Loos death purchased this same portrait []. Holbein was introduced to Erasmus, and later painted three portraits of him. Master Holbein has grouped them under his gaze, filed them forever: as long as no moth consumes, no flame or mold or blight.
