The man behind the greatest Tudor paintings. Holbein was Henry VIII's court painter. To an unusual and perhaps unique degree, his paintings of the King and his court, including Thomas More, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves and Thomas Cromwell, have shaped our image of the era.
In this documentary Waldemar Januszczak looks at the life and career of Holbein, exploring where he came from, how he painted his subjects and what his art reveals about the workings of the court and the dark world of the Tudors.
