ART 115/351 PALKO

"The Ambassadors" by Hans Holbein the Younger was painted with oil on wood panel during the Renaissance. This double portrait served to represent and memorialize the wealth and education of the two men, Jean de Dinteville and Georges de Selve, through the use of symbolism. Some details may also be references to religion. The skull in the painting represents mortality.
