In Germany, the transition from the Middle Ages to the modern age was delayed by almost 100 years. By 1500, Italy had already experienced its Early Renaissance and was into its High Renaissance. In contrast, German art was still attached to the stylistic forms of Gothic art and International Gothic.
It was in the beginning of the 16th century that German art began to free itself from Medieval consciousness. Contact between Italian cities and those in Germany was ongoing during much of the 15th century. The humanist attitudes and novel visions of Italian Renaissance art moved northwards.
Gradually German artists came in touch with the 'new' art and this encouraged them to set off on tours to Italy, to study the Italian masters.
