Bennett, Vanora

Portrait of an Unknown Woman

illustrated ed

€ 16.95

In the year 1527, the great portraitist Hans Holbein, fleeing the Protestant Reformation, comes to England under commission to Sir Thomas More. Over the course of the next six years, Holbein paints two nearly identical portraits of the More family, his dear and loyal friends. But closer examination of the second painting reveals several mysteries. . . . Set against the turmoil and tragedy of Henry VIII's court, "Portrait of an Unknown Woman" vividly evokes sixteenth-century England on the verge of enormous change--as viewed through the eyes of Meg Giggs, More's intelligent, tenderhearted, headstrong adopted daughter, who stands at the center of this sweeping, extraordinary epic. It is a tale of sin and religion, desire and deception--the story of a young woman on the brink of sensual awakening and a country on the edge of mayhem.
