The northern European tradition of Gothic Art was greatly affected by the technical and philosophical advancements of the Renaissance in Italy. While less concerned with studies of anatomy and linear perspective, northern artists were masters of technique, and their works are marvels of exquisite detail. As Italy moved into the High Renaissance, the north retained a distinct Gothic influence. In the mid-16th century, as in the south, the Northern Renaissance eventually gave way to a highly stylized Mannerism.
