Northern Renaissance Art

Susie Nash

Oxford History of Art

  • A wide-ranging introduction to the art of the northern Renaissance--from panel paintings to carved altarpieces
  • Draws on a rich range of sources, from inventories and guild regulations to poetry and chronicles, to show how art was made, valued, and viewed by the people of the time
  • Discusses both lesser known gems, as well as classics such as the paintings of Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, and Hans Memling
  • Challenges the common perception of Italian artistic supremacy in this period, showing how northern art dominated the world of visual culture at this time
