I just got the message below out-of-the-blue, and so I can't speak of the
authenticity of the painting he has for sale, but I thought it might
possibly be of interest to someone here. For those of you who might be
unfamiliar with who Hans Holbein the Younger was, among other things he's
famous for doing woodcuts 'n' stuff back in the 16th century. The reason I
suppose this person wrote to me is because I have a page of Holbein's
"Dance Of Death" decorative initials, which you can see at...
...if you're interested in further info on him and his work (although
there's not a lot there other than those initials).
