The Rest on the Flight into Egypt

Jan Massys Netherlandish
and Master of the Liège Disciples at Emmaus Netherlandish

This depiction masterfully demonstrates advances in the development of new genres of painting in the 1530s in Antwerp, namely landscape and still-life, and the introduction of figural motifs derived from the works of Leonardo da Vinci. Increasingly characteristic was a division of labor in workshops where one artist—Jan Massys—painted the figures, and another—the Master of the Liège Disciples at Emmaus—added the landscape.
