Jan Gossaert's Renaissance

On Sunday April 3, 2011 I visited the exhibition Jan Gossaert's Renaissance at the National Gallery in London. Admission was managed with time slots, which meant it wasn't overly busy and I got to have a good look at the works. The exhibition counted six rooms with walls in sturdy colours. There were paintings and drawings by Gossaert, as well as work from contemporaries like Dürer and Lucas van Leyden.
Gossaert, also known as Mabuse, was a Flemish renaissance painter who had travelled to Italy. He used classical ornaments and backgrounds and was amongst the first painters from the low countries to introduce nudes and erotic elements. His portraits have a way to strongly establish the presence of those portrayed.
