Quick Reference

A term, less used nowadays, coined in connection with those Netherlandish artists who travelled to Rome in the 16th century. The most important Romanists included Jan Gossaert, Jan van Scorel, Maarten van Heemskeck, and Lambert Lombard. Their often muscular, figurative art derived from a number of influences—above all Michelangelo, as well as the works of Raphael and his students, and the classical monuments and artefacts to be found in the eternal city.

Subjects: Renaissance Art.
