Quotes

'Franny Moyle rediscovers the elusive man behind the most famous artworks in Tudor England. <i>The King's Painter</i> is full of insight into Hans Holbein's artistic process but also gives us a seat beside a man who had an access-all-areas pass to the most intimate circles in sixteenth-century Europe. This is a gorgeous book, to which I am sure I shall return again and again'

Dan Jones

'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

<b>PRAISE FOR FRANNY MOYLE</b>: <br />
'Moyle's account [...] is delightful, sad, and entirely convincing; her last chapters reduced this hardened reader to tears' <i>Guardian</i>, on <i>Constance</i><br />
'Well-crafted, delicious ... Moyles grips us immediately' <i>New York Times</i>, on <i>The Extraordinary Life and Times of J.M.W. Turner</i>. <br />
'Moyle is especially good at delineating Turner's artistic methods, and her enthralling account is filled with an impressive understanding of his unique talent'
