Netherlandish painting of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries still has the power to astonish. Its seemingly impossible level of detail, fascination with the surface appearance of things, subtle depiction of light and an uncompromising attitude to realistically depicting the human face, all contribute to an art of intense beauty and sophistication. In their day, Netherlandish artists were internationally renowned; their mastery of the medium of oil paint was emulated across Europe while their interest in landscape and depiction of everyday subjects gave rise to new genres of art.

Van Eyck to Gossaert: Towards a Northern Renaissance explores the richness of Netherlandish paintings of this period, their international impact – particularly in Renaissance Italy – and discovers how a small corner of northern Europe gave rise to one of the most fertile eras of cultural production in the history of western painting.

The DVD contains insight into the artists’ working methods revealed by the Gallery’s Conservation and Scientific Departments and a demonstration of the preparation and use of oil paint close examination of the works in the context of other Netherlandish art forms including book illumination and tapestry.

Van Eyck to Gossaert: Towards a Northern Renaissance also has a bonus film on the life and work of Jan Gossaert, which was made to accompany the exhibition Jan Gossaert’s Renaissance.
