Can contemporary art help rewrite a country’s history? On this episode of Inquiry, we welcome back MARISA ANNE BASS, associate professor of the history of art at Yale University. Tonight we talk about  Netherlandish artist Jan Gossart (1478-1532), whose beautiful paintings of classical mythological subjects were part of a cultural search in the Low Countries for a renaissance of their very own. Marisa Anne Bass’ gorgeous book on the subject is JAN GOSSART AND THE INVENTION OF NETHERLANDISH ANTIQUITY.
