My latest for The New York Sun:

Maarten van Heemskerck is no longer considered a major painter, but his exhibition at the Museum Boijmans in Rotterdam displays the mechanisms by which an assuredly major painter, Michelangelo, made his presence felt across Europe.

Have a gander at the whole thing, if you'd be so kind.
