Virgin and Child, c.1525, Jan Gossart, Museum of Modern Art, New York City, USA

Jan Gossart is the Netherlandish artist most often credited with successfully assimilating Italian Renaissance style into northern European art of the early–sixteenth century. He was among the first northern artists to travel to Rome to make copies after antique sculpture, and to introduce historical and mythological subjects with erotic nude figures into the mainstream of Netherlandish painting. Gossart is the pivotal figure who changed the course of Netherlandish art history from the Medieval craft tradition of its founder, Jan van Eyck, and charted new territory that eventually led to the great age of Rubens. This international loan exhibition will bring together Gossart's paintings, drawings, and prints, and place them in the context of the art and artists that influenced his transformation from Late Gothic Mannerism to the new Renaissance style.
