1510 ca1575, Oct 8
It is possible to distinguish three periods in the work of Jan Massys. During the first period before his exile of 1544, he collaborated with and worked in the style of his father. From the second period, which coincides with his banishment from Antwerp from 1544 to 1555, only 9 works can be traced. After his return to Antwerp Jan reached the height of his artistic powers. He developed a distinct style and treated a number of subjects that became characteristic for his work. Remarkable is the important role that the female nude and eroticism play in his work.
