About this item

Rejecting the long-held understanding of Netherlandish art and intellectual history during the early 16th century as revelatory encounters with Italy and the rediscovered antiquities of Rome, Bass argues that classical rhetoric, antique forms, and antiquarian pursuits did not seep into northern Europe passively and inevitably, but were the result of a conscious effort to generate a flourishing culture in the north, a deliberate challenge to Rome's hegemonic claim to its Roman past and intellectual legacy. She focuses on the artist Jan Gossart (c. 1478-1532), also known as Mabuse, who introduced mythological painting as an independent genre into the art of the Low Countries.
