The Artist's Family

The Artist's Family
c. 1528
Oil and tempera on paper cut out and mounted on wood

This is a brilliant piece which masterfully shows emotions and shadows. This piece was originally done on paper and then later cut out and mounted on dark panel. The painting portrays Holbein's wife, Elsbeth, and his two eldest children, Philipp and Katherina.
