Flemish painter of the Renaissance and the Northern mannerism.
Jan Mandana belong to the group of Antwerp artists, followers of Hieronymus Bosch, who continued the tradition of fantastic images and laid the foundations of the so-called Northern mannerism in contrast to the Italian.
Authorship attributed to Mandana pictures, except for the "Temptation of St. Anthony" is not installed. It is believed that Mandan was illiterate and therefore could not leave on their "Temptations" signature in Gothic script. Critics suggest that he just copied a signature prepared sample.
It is known that about 1530 Mandan became a master in Antwerp, his pupils were Gillis Mostaert and Bartholomeus Spranger.
