CDR-1344: SR Set: Landscape Vignettes in Northern Renaissance Painting

These 'pictures within pictures' are minute views of the landscape often literally seen through the window of an iconographic-studded interior or over the shoulder of a foreground figure à la Robert Campin or Rogier van der Weyden. Even a scrap of landscape provides a glimpse into spatial depth, drawing the viewer's attention into the real world beyond, and an admiration for the minute detail of the Northern Renaissance sensibility. Within the century, landscape painting itself would become the subject, while the titular scene would become insignificant, as seen in the work of Joachim Patinir.
