It’s a close detail from The Merchant Georg Gisze (1532) by Hans Holbein the Younger, in an image available via the Google Art Project. The before-the-jump image is a screen grab—a detail of a snatch of paint just about Georg’s nostril—showing how astoundingly closely these museum-quality scans let you peer into the paint. (The image at right is a screen-grab detail, too; go to the site for a complete view of the painting, which resides in Berlin’s Gemäldegalerie.)
Audio commentary at the site explains that Gisze was a leading figure in the European commercial confederacy known as the Hanseatic League; he was 34 at the time of the painting.
As a former museum books editor, I don’t know what to make of Google’s Art Project—but as a person with eyes, I suggest you go and dig in; it’s deep.
Another great project from Google!
