The 16th century was a time of political and religious rupture. The artists who lived through these difficult times, however, opened new pathways which we still employ today. The great printmaker Albrecht Dürer strove to add the science of the Italian Renaissance to the artistic learning of the North, and while doing so discovered a whole new world for the visual arts to explore. Taking up Dürer’s explorations with enthusiasm, Pieter Bruegel and artists of the Netherlands developed a new secular art. Here subjects such as landscape, still life, and genre were no longer just accessories for religious painting but independent and worthy subjects in themselves.
