Jean de Dinterville was a French nobleman who came to England as an ambassador in the 1530. He was one of the two people shown in a famous painting by Holbein – he is the figure on the left. This picture is famous partly for the strange object at the bottom of the picture – it is actually an anamorphic image of a skull, but you have to look almost from the edge of the canvas for this to become apparent.
Hans Holbein the Younger was a German artist who painted in a Northern Renaissance style, and was best known for his numerous portraits.
