This luxurious chain evokes a widespread style favored by 16th-century European high society. It was inspired by a gold chain in Benedikt von Hertenstein, a portrait by Hans Holbein the Younger (German, 1497/981543) in the Met's collection. In 1517, Holbein decorated the house of the Lucerne magistrate Jacob von Hertenstein; at the same time he painted this image of the eldest son, Benedikt, who is dressed in sumptuous textiles, jeweled rings, and the impressive gold chain to signify his wealth and taste.
