Description:
This is the first English-language study of Jan Gossart (ca. 1478-1532)--one of the most important painters of the so-called Northern Renaissance--in his historical context. Providing a richly illustrated chronological narrative of the Netherlandish artist's life and art, Marisa Anne Bass shows how Gossart's painting was part of a larger cultural effort in the Netherlands to assert the region's ancient heritage, one distinct from the Roman past then being revived by the artists of the Italian Renaissance. Focusing on five of Gossart's vibrant, monumental mythological nudes, the book challenges previous interpretations by arguing that Gossart and his patrons were seeking not to imitate Italian Renaissance models but to contest the idea that the Roman past gave the Italians a monopoly on antiquity. Drawing on many previously unused primary sources in Latin, Dutch, and French, Jan Gossart and the Invention of Netherlandish Antiquity offers a fascinating new understanding of both the painter and the Northern Renaissance itself.     ­
