It finally feels like autumn here in central Texas now, which makes me very, very happy. 🙂
One book that I missed a couple of months ago was Crime and Punishment in Tudor England: From Alchemists to Zealots by April Taylor and it is now out in both the UK and US:
And How to Dress Like a Tudor Hardcover by Judith Arnopp is another book that was already out in the UK that may be coming out in November in the US… I have two different dates, but since I don’t have much for November I thought I’d go ahead and post it this month.
Continuing a trend… How to Survive in Tudor England by Toni Mount was released at the end of October in the UK, but I missed it since there wasn’t a release date noted when I was looking it up for last month’s book round-up. It will be out at the end of December in the US.
Holbein at the Tudor Court opens at The Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace on November 10, 2023 and will run through April 23, 2024.
About the exhibition from the website:
Explore the art of the image-maker of the Tudor court in this exciting new exhibition.
Hans Holbein was one of the most talented artists of the 16th century. From his arrival in England in search of work he rose to royal favour, chosen to paint the portraits of Henry VIII, his family and leading figures, among them Anne Boleyn and Sir Thomas More. By his death, Holbein’s work was as admired by his contemporaries as it is today. His portraits inspired the next generation of artists in their depictions of Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I.
This exhibition showcases one of the most important surviving collections of his work, and includes drawings, paintings, miniatures and book illustrations. Celebrating Holbein’s artistic skill, it explores the career of the artist and the lives of those who commissioned portraits from him, bringing us face-to-face with some of the most famous people of 16th-century England.
Hever Castle has a new exhibition that debuted when it reopened for the year on February 8 – Catherine & Anne: Queens, Rivals, Mothers. Admission to the exhibition is included with tickets to the castle. There is also a companion book available which can also be purchased from the online shop.
