Holbein and Thomas More: An Intimate Portrait
Xavier F. Salomon
Hans Holbein the Younger’s portrait of Sir Thomas More, painted in 1527, is one of the pinnacles of the artist’s career. Xavier F. Salomon, Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, The Frick Collection, explores the friendship between artist and sitter, which developed during Holbein’s first trip to London, and the wider network of scholarly exchanges that informed the creation of this work of art.
The lecture will take place in the Morgan's Gilder Lehrman Hall in compliance with all current city guidelines. Click here for more information about our visitor guidelines and safety protocols.
