Northern European Painting of the 15th-16th Centuries

explores the paintings (and accompanying texts) to holdings at the National Gallery of Art. The Gallery states that "the 15th and 16th centuries saw the rise of capitalism and a burgeoning middle class, the creation of modern nation states, and the upheaval of the Protestant Reformation. For artists, an innovation of equally far-reaching importance was the perfection of oil paints in the Low Countries, which allowed northern painters to depict the world with unprecedented precision.
