Reviews
"A biography entirely suited to its subject. ... this is a great, thrusting codpiece of a book. It is big, bombastic, and richly brocaded ... A triumph."--The Times (UK)
"Evokes the painter and his world as vividly as a Holbein masterpiece. Beautifully written and illustrated, this book is a must for lovers of Tudor history."--Tracy Borman, author of Thomas Cromwell and The Private Lives of the Tutors
"Full of insight ... This is a gorgeous book, to which I am sure I shall return again and again."--Dan Jones, author of The Plantagenets, The Wars of the Roses, and The Templars
"One of the great strengths of Moyle's book is it allows you to view Holbein's enormous versalitity. ... Time and again, though, one returns awestruck to the overwhelming sophistication of Holbein's gift for verisimilitude."--The Spectator
