AINSWORTH, MARYAN W. - Man, Myth, and Sensual Pleasures . Jan Gossart's Renaissance. The complete works.

New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2010. Hardcover (cloth). 440. Color Illustrations. ISBN/EAN: 978-0-300-16657-6. Conditie: As new. Jan Gossart (ca. 1478  1532) was among the first Netherlandish artists to travel to Rome to make drawings after antique monuments and sculpture and then, upon his return, to introduce biblical and mythological subjects with erotic nude figures into the mainstream of Northern painting. Often credited with successfully assimilating Italian Renaissance style into the art of 16th-century northern Europe, Gossart is the pivotal old master who redirected the course of early Netherlandish art from the legacy of its founder, Jan van Eyck, toward a new style that would eventually lead to the great age of Peter Paul Rubens. Man, Myth, and Sensual Pleasures: Jan Gossarts Renaissance offers a much-needed comprehensive reappraisal of the artists accomplishments the first in 45 years. It is not only an exhibition catalogue but also a study of Gossarts complete oeuvre as a painter, draftsman, and printmaker. Among the many highlights are the exquisite, gemlike Malvagna Triptych, Gossarts only surviving intact altarpiece; the Carondelet Diptych, one of the masterpieces of early Netherlandish portraiture; the Portrait of an Old Couple, an astonishingly trenchant psychological study; the extraordinary drawing of Adam and Eve from the collection of the Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth; and a unique hand-colored etching of the young Charles V. To demonstrate the artistic milieu of which Gossart was a part, antique and Renaissance sculpture, paintings by contemporaries such as Gerard David and Bernard van Orley, and prints and drawings by Marcantonio Raimondi, Lucas van Leyden, and Albrecht Durer are also discussed and illustrated..
