The Low Countries

Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516)

  • Had a wild and lurid imagination.
  • Fanciful monsters apparitions.
  • Untouched by the values of the Italian
    Quattrocento, like mathematical perspective.
  • His figures are flat.
  • Perspective is ignored.
  • More a landscape painter than a portraitist.

Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525-1569)
  • One of the greatest artistic geniuses of his age.
  • Worked in Antwerp and then moved to Brussels.
  • In touch with a circle of Erasmian humanists.
  • Was deeply concerned with human vice and follies.
  • A master of landscapes not a portraitist.
  • People in his works often have round, blank,
    heavy faces.
  • They are expressionless, mindless, and sometimes
    malicious.
  • They are types, rather than individuals.
  • Their purpose is to convey a message.

Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco)
  • The most important Spanish artist of this period
    was Greek.
  • His works represent a more Catholic approach to
    art
  • He deliberately distorts elongates his figures,
    and seats them in a lurid, unearthly atmosphere.
  • He ignores the rules of perspective, and
    heightens the effect by areas of brilliant color.
  • His works were a fitting expression of the
    Spanish Counter-Reformation.
