Jan Gossart - Madonna, 5055



Jan Gossaert, also known as Jan Mabuse, was a Flemish painter who lived during the Renaissance. He was born around 1478 in Maubeuge, which is now in France but was then part of the Burgundian Netherlands. Gossaert began his career as a manuscript illuminator and later became a painter. He worked for various patrons, including the court of Philip of Burgundy and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. Gossaert's style was influenced by Italian Renaissance art, particularly the work of Raphael, and he was known for his use of bright colours and intricate detail. He painted religious subjects as well as portraits and mythological scenes. Some of his most famous works include 'The Adoration of the Magi' (c.1510-1515), 'Danaë' (c.1527) and 'Hercules and Deianira' (c.1517). Gossaert died in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1532.
