Summary

De godin Diana als Luna (de maan), op de wolken rijdend op zijn zegewagen, die wordt getrokken door nimfen met pijl en boog. Middenboven het sterrenbeeld Kreeft. Onderaan een kustlandschap met de havens van Venetië, Istanbul en de Nederlanden. Op zee varen vele boten. In de steden wordt handel gedreven. Onder de voorstelling een lofdicht in het Latijn over de invloed van de maan op de kuststreken van de Nederlanden en de Middellandse Zee. Deze prent maakt deel uit van een album.

The roots of the Flemish school are usually placed in Dijon, the capital of the dukes of Burgundy where Philip the Bold (reigned 1363–1404) established a tradition of art patronage. Philip the Good (reigned 1419–67) moved the Burgundian capital to Brugge (Bruges). The largest county in the Southern Netherlands was Flanders and the term Flanders is often used to refer to the whole of the Southern Netherlands. Flanders produced many famous artists of Northern Europe. Arts flourished in the County of Flanders and neighboring Brabant, Hainaut, Picardy, Artois, and Tournaisis, from the early 15th century until the 17th century. In the 15th century and up to 1520 Flaundry was a part of Early Netherlandish art with the center in Antwerp. It gradually became distinct from the art of the rest of the Low Countries, especially the modern Netherlands by the end of the 16th century, when the north and the south Netherlands were politically separated. During the last quarter of the 16th century, political unrest between the northern and southern parts of the Netherlands brought a decline in Flemish art. Many Flemish artists left the Southern Netherlands for Rome, Germany, or the Dutch Republic. After Twelve Year Truce, Flemish art revived.
