Hans Holbein - Sir Thomas More

This is a portrait of Sir Thomas More (1527). This picture caught my eye because it is so vivid. He uses the complementary colors of green and red to make the picture stand out. The deep green in the background brings out the persons face and the red on the sleeves makes the picture whole because the black dulls it out. He was a German artist that focused on portraits. Hans was also important in the Renaissance artist.
