What is Northern Renaissance

The Renaissance in the north has a distinctively different character than that of
Italy and the southern countries. Though the styles of Northern artists vary
according to geography, one characteristic that is fundamental to all northern
art of this period is a fondness for meticulous rendering of details. In addition,
there is generally less of the classical ideal apparent in the figures (which can
be partly explained by their lack of access to Greek and Roman statues).
Instead, remnants of Gothic influences are apparent in their compositions.
