The Rest on the Flight into Egypt

Netherlandish (Antwerp) Painters Netherlandish

Not on view

Growing demand for panel paintings in early sixteenth-century Antwerp, encouraged artists to specialize and collaborate; this picture was probably the result of such a collaboration. The charming landscape is comparable to those ascribed to the Master of the Female Half-Lengths, who apparently trained in Joachim Patinir's workshop, while the Virgin and Child may be from the workshop of Quentin Massys.
