More information

This portrait of Erasmus is in all probability a copy from the 18th century. The copyist took works by Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein the Younger as examples for his panel. The room in which the philosopher is seated can be compared to interiors that Dürer depicted, for example in his 'Hieronymus in his study'. One of the contemporary portraits of Erasmus was made by Hans Holbein the Younger. His features were undoubtedly used by the unknown artist as model for the face of the humanist.
