Jan Gossaert, nicknamed Jan Mabuse, was a native of Mauberge (now France). He is one of the key figures in the Netherlandish painting, the founder of Romanism, who sought to assimilate the achievements of the Italian Renaissance (in 1508-1509 the artist visited Rome). His work is a fascinating (and sometimes uncomfortable) combination of the northern skills and vision and Italian aspirations.
Jan Gossaert’s major works are Neptune and Amphitrite, 1516 (Berlin: Staatliche Museum); Adam and Eve, c. 1520 (London: National Gallery); A Nobleman, c. 1525–28 (Berlin: Staatliche Museum).
