Sunday's Art: Apollo and the Muses by Holbein the Younger

Apollo and The Muses on Parnassus by Hans Holbein the Younger. Thomas More was the welcoming committee when he arrived in England.

"Born 1497–between 7 and 29 November 1543 was a German artist and print maker who worked in a Northern Renaissance style. He is best known as one of the greatest portraitists of the 16Th century. He also produced religious art, satire and Reformation propaganda, and made a significant contribution to the history of book design. He is called "the Younger" to distinguish him from his father, Hans Holbein the Elder, an accomplished painter of the Late Gothic school."
