HelloCustomerand welcome to JustAnswer.

The answer to the question is c, iconoclasm, which was an extreme variant of Protestantism in Europe in the 1520's and 1530's. However, there is very little verifiable historical evidence that iconoclasts actually destroyed any of Holbein's works.

Holbein's paintings were religiously ambiguous and he remained in favor despite the changing religious attitudes. He gained favor with Thomas Cromwell and hence Henry the VIII and Anne Boleyn, and survived the fall from grace of both Boleyn and Cromwell.
