Providing a richly illustrated chronological narrative of the Netherlandish artists life and art, Marisa Anne Bass shows how Gossarts painting was part of a larger cultural effort in the Netherlands to assert the regions ancient heritage, one distinct from the Roman past then being revived by the artists of the Italian Renaissance.Focusing on five of Gossarts vibrant, monumental mythological nudes, the book challenges previous interpretations by arguing that Gossart and his patrons were seeking not to imitate Italian Renaissance models but to contest the idea that the Roman past gave the Italians a monopoly on antiquity.

Drawing on many previously unused primary sources in Latin, Dutch, and French, Jan Gossart and the Invention of Netherlandish Antiquity offers a fascinating new understanding of both the painter and the Northern Renaissance itself.
