  1. Lady Macbeth
    ———————
    Lady Macbeth is the Wife of Macbeth although she is very selfish and cruel about her choices… she is most likely to be bossing Macbeth around as he doesn’t act like a man as she wants him to. Her Husband is a good friend of the Scottish King, King Duncan. She wants King Duncan out of her sight so she can have the power of being royalty, her instincts have the urge to gain that power and be a powerful woman as she is a selfish being.

    She has persuading messages to convince Macbeth to be a man and never be a weakling, although she had bossed him around and forcing him to do these type of horrible stuff, she had even felt guilt inside for all of this power and ability she could have!

    Holbein was one of the most accomplished portraitists of the 16th century. He spent two periods of his life in England (1526-8 and 1532-43), portraying the nobility of the Tudor court. Holbein’s famous portrait of Henry VIII (London, National Portrait Gallery) dates from the second of these periods. ‘The Ambassadors’, also from this period, depicts two visitors to the court of Henry VIII. ‘Christina of Denmark’ is a portrait of a potential wife for the king.

    Holbein was born in Augsburg in southern Germany in the winter of 1497-8. He was taught by his father, Hans Holbein the Elder. He became a member of the Basel artists’ guild in 1519. He travelled a great deal, and is recorded in Lucerne, northern Italy and France. In these years he produced woodcuts and fresco designs as well as panel paintings. With the spread of the Reformation in Northern Europe the demand for religious images declined and artists sought alternative work. Holbein first travelled to England in 1526 with a recommendation to Thomas More from the scholar Erasmus. In 1532 he settled in England, dying of the plague in London in 1543.

    Holbein was a highly versatile and technically accomplished artist who worked in different media. He also designed jewellery and metalwork.

  7. Hans Holbein the Younger was a German painter and printmaker who worked in a Northern Renaissance style and is considered one of the greatest portraitists of the 16th century he also produced religious art satire and Reformation propaganda and he made a significant contribution to the history of book design i can find that he painted for several famous people like king Henry VIII he was from Germany and was born on 1497 and died on 1543.

Predominantly linked to the Northern Renaissance, Holbein also incorporated elements and ideas from the Italian Renaissance into his work to create sumptuous and detailed images with their own unique appearance.

Predominantly linked to the Northern Renaissance, Holbein also incorporated elements and ideas from the Italian Renaissance into his work to create sumptuous and detailed images with their own unique appearance. Holbein is particularly well known for his mastery of light and texture, and his exquisite portrayals of fabric, fur, and glass are a testament to his skill.

    Accomplishments
    Holbein’s art is considered realist in that he represented people with detail and precision, and was renowned for creating a true likeness (albeit, perhaps, a flattering one) of his sitters. His portraits are characterized by strong gazes, a diversity of appearance and carefully rendered clothing and accessories. Despite the meticulous nature of his portrayals, however, the images are often inscrutable, revealing little of the character of the sitter.
    Many of Holbein’s portraits are rich in background details, often consisting of trompe l’oeil objects such as letters, flowers, and tools and these are believed to be symbolic. With some of the meanings now lost, however, their intended messages have become an area for modern art historical debate.
    Holbein’s most famous images are those he painted of the English royal court and particularly of Henry VIII. These were created and utilized as propaganda to convey authority, masculinity, wealth, succession, and the divine right of royalty to rule to a wider audience. This was particularly important in a period of religious turmoil such as the Reformation.
