Jean de Dinteville and Georges de Selve (The Ambassadors) is a painting by Hans Holbein the younger painted in 1533. It's held by the National Gallery in London, England and was bought in 1890. It is painted with a meticulous eye for detail, and its inner meaning is controversial. At right is Georges de Selve, aged 25, Bishop of Lavaur.
