Event Details

Hans Holbein the Younger is celebrated for his beautiful and iconic portraits including Henry VIII, Thomas Cromwell, Anne Of Cleves, Jane Seymour, Thomas More and a dazzling array of the Tudor lords and ladies he encountered during his two stays in England. These rich and symbolic images define our perception of Henry’s court. Award winning biographer and filmmaker Franny Moyle traces the life and work of an extraordinary, pioneering artist against the backdrop of an era of political turbulence and change, to which his art offers a subtle and endlessly refracting mirror. And she explores his compelling relationship with Henry VIII.‘This is a great thrusting codpiece of a book. It’s big, bombastic and richly brocaded…I take my feathered cap off to Franny Moyle’. (The Times)

‘Evokes the painter and his world as vividly as a Holbein masterpiece’ (Tracy Borman).

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
