Where are the bones of Hans Holbein? I spent lockdown solving art's grisliest mystery
The German artist died in London almost 500 years ago. To this day, no one knows where in the city he was buried. He was a star of the Renaissance, an unflinching painter of death and horror in a time of rampant plague. Yet he ended up in an unmarked grave in London. Or so it has always been believed. While on lockdown, Jonathan Jones went on a mission to find the artist's bones. In this fascinating piece, he shares the results of his efforts for the Guardian.
