……HANS HOLBEIN THE YOUNGER
CHAPTER I
GERMAN PAINTING IN THE LAST HALE OF THE
FIFTEENTH CENTURY
HANS HOLBEIN the younger was born in the city of Augsburg on
a day unknown in the year 1497. He died in London during the
year 1543.! Before we attemnpt to deal with the facts of the great painter's
life it will be of advantage to take a glance at the condition and character-
istics of German painting, and especially of Swabian painting, at the close
of the fifteenth and the beginning of the sixteenth centuries.
German painting may be said to have reached its culminating point at
about that time. The forty years which went before and the forty years
which followed the year 15oo form a period which will be found to include
almost all the names which give to Germany its right to a place among the
great schools of painting. The list which is appended to this chapter will
enable the reader to assure himself of that fact. In it will be found the
names of Martin Schongauer, Michacl Wohlgemut, Hans Holbein the
clder, Bernhardt Strigel, Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Hans Burgkmair,
Hans Baldung Grün, Hans Holbein the younger, Christopher Amberger,
and others. Remove from this list the two chief names, Albrecht Dürer and
Hans Holbein the younger, and we have left to us a little band of admirable
artists, whose achievements, if they do not always fascinate the ordinary
picture lover, yet always command the respect of the student. They show,
indeed, as compared with the Italian schools of the same period, limitations
which will always prevent them from being popular in the sense in which
the Italian masters are popular. As we pass in one of the great European
galleries through some roomn illed with the works of the early I talian
masters we carry away from them a sense of sweetness and of grace com-
pared to which the work of the ffteenth-century German is apt to strike
us as harsh and angular. The characteristics, indeed, of the German
schools are thoroughness and seriousness. The strong and patient nature
of the race comes out in its Art as in all else that it has put its hand to.
Further remarks on both these dates will be found in the chapter which deals with the
painter's life. ….

The images and text are very good. There's wear to the edges of the pages. Marks and wear to the cover. The spine is still good and strong and the pages are held in. There are 2 additional drawings in the book, added by a previous owner by Holbein. 1 - Of John More, Son of Sir Thomas More - Windsor Castle. 2.Edward, Prince of Wales - Windsor Castle. I am not sure where these additional sketches are from there are just within the cover no fixed to the book.
