The Northern Renaissance

Centered in Germany and the Netherlands, 15 th- 16 enturies

The northern European tradition of Gothic Art was greatly affected by the technical and philosophical advancements of the Renaissance in Italy. While less concerned with studies of anatomy and linear perspective, northern artists were masters of technique, and their works are marvels of exquisite detail.

The great artists who inspired the Northern Renaissance included Robert Campin, Jan van Eyck (and his brother Hubert, about whom little is known) and Rogier van der Weyden.

As Italy moved into the High Renaissance, the north retained a distinct Gothic influence. Yet masters like D'rer, Bosch, Bruegel and Holbein were the equal of the greatest artists of the south.

In the mid – 16, as in the south, the Northern Renaissance eventually gave way to a highly stylized Mannerism.
