Abstract: In the court milieu of the early sixteenth century, one of the most explicit indicators of the changing status of architecture in the Netherlandish professional world was the use of the term ‘artist’ (artiste) to distinguish specialists in ‘antique works’ (anticse wercken). The exact meaning of the term ‘artist’, let alone its origin, has never been closely analysed. In this essay, we shall explore the evolving status and image of the Netherlandish architect as artist in contemporary sources and in the early historiography, in relation to court patronage and to the Italian standard set by Alberti and vulgarized by Vasari.
