"Every age projects its own images into its art." The northern Renaissance (c. 1450-1600) demonstrated a surprising technique of realism and detail, some pieces almost taking the appearance of a photograph. Also, portraits were created for what they were, the northern painters didn't idealize the person(s) they were painting like the artists of the Italian Renaissance. Some other aspects that northern Renaissance artists included in their artwork were symbolism and printmaking, or the use of woodcuts to produce images. The artists that will be included in this gallery are Robert Campin and Pieter Bruegel. Both painted secularly and religiously, as the Northern Renaissance took on a more religious approach than the Italian Renaissance.
