Along with Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein the Elder and Hans Burgkmair the Elder are regarded as pioneers of a new art: Renaissance painting. The centre of this art was the imperial and commercial metropolis of Augsburg, which within a few decades developed into the capital of both the German and international Renaissance. With the works of Hans Holbein the Younger, art from Augsburg finally became known throughout Europe. Starting this autumn, the Städel Museum is devoting a major special exhibition to this turning point in the history of art, bringing together outstanding loans from Europe’s most important museums. For the first time in more than ten years, Hans Holbein the Younger’s major work, the “Madonna of Jakob Meyer zum Hasen” (1526–1528, Würth Collection, Künzelsau), can be seen again in Frankfurt.
