Ghent, Joos van

(Joos van Wassenhove; c. 1430-c. 1480)
   Netherlandish painter active in Italy. It is not clear where Joos was born or trained. He is known to have entered the painters' guild of Antwerp in 1460, to have moved to Ghent in 1464, where in 1467 he sponsored Hugo van der Goes' entry into the guild, and to have left for Italy sometime after 1468, where he remained for the rest of his life. In Italy, he worked as Giusto da Guanto, an Italian translation of his name. Joos' Communion of the Apostles (1472-1474; Urbino, Galleria Nazionale delle Marche) is a work he painted in Urbino that is documented as having been commissioned by the Confraternity of Corpus Domini for the Church of St. Agatha and financed by Duke Federico da Montefeltro, the city's ruler. In fact, the duke and his son are included in the painting, in the right back-ground. Based on this documented painting and its visual qualities, others have been attributed to Joos, including the Adoration of the Magi (c. 1460-1465; New York, Metropolitan Museum) and the Crucifixion Triptych (Ghent, Cathedral of St. Bavon).
