Portrait of a Nobleman with a Hawk
<pHans Holbein made refined portraits that are good likenesses, without detracting from the dignity of his subject. This made his paintings very popular with the English aristocracy. According to the inscription, this anonymous man is 28 years old. His fine clothing and gold rings lead us to believe that he belonged to the upper classes. This is further confirmed by the bird of prey.
