"Portrait of the Merchant Georg Gisze"

Hans Holbein The Younger - Oil On Panel - 96 x 85 cm - 1532 - (Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Berlin, Germany))

Portrait of the Merchant Georg Gisze (1532) is a artwork (Oil and tempera on oak) by the German painter and printmaker Hans Holbein the Younger. Holbein painted this large portrait at the beginning of his second period in England in search of work, and it may be intended as a virtuoso showpiece for his gifts in portraiture and the depiction of objects and textures. It is the most sumptuous of his series of portraits of mainly German merchants of the Steelyard, a complex of offices, warehouses, and residences on the north bank of the Thames in London. Familiar with Holbein's wider reputation, the merchants were quick to take advantage of his presence in London. The Danzig merchant Georg Gisze (or Giese) is shown among the paraphernalia of his trade: money, pen, seal, inkpots, balance, boxes, scissors, keys. On a table covered with a Turkey rug stands a vase of carnations, perhaps symbolising his betrothal (Gisze married Christine Krüger in Danzig in 1535). The painting (90.3 × 85.7 cm) is in the Berlin State Museums.
