I find Northern Renaissance and Late Gothic art quite exciting. Somehow the artists of the North, especially the Germans, seen to be able to communicate the dignity and tragedy of being human better than the Italians. It could be the weather... that having to live with the winds and the cloud and the rain as well as the sun... and, of course, the hard winters.
Baxandall is a tremendous art historian and he excels himself in this superlative study of the sculptors of Northern Europe.
