April 5, 1992 | CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT, Christopher Knight is a Times art critic
Although he was Northern Europe's most eloquent practitioner of Mannerist art, it's been a while since the name of Hendrick Goltzius has set off many bells. The Dutch engraver and painter enjoyed enormous popular success at the turn of the 17th Century, when his sensuously intricate art was widely coveted. But as the Mannerist style was eclipsed, he was steadily relegated to ever-darker shadows. For Goltzius' reputation, the problem was acute.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art's prized Dutch Mannerist painting is looking better than it has in, say, 300 years. "The Sleeping Danae Being Prepared to Receive Jupiter" by Hendrick Goltzius is back on view after a year's absence, a thorough cleaning and an expert conservation treatment. Stripped of old varnish, freed from discolored restorations and deftly repaired by conservator Joseph Fronek, the 1603 painting basks in a rosy light and sports formerly hidden details.

As Picasso was to the modern era, so was German artist Albrecht Durer to the 16th Century art of Northern Europe. A multitalented titan revered in his day, Durer played a central role in introducing the ideas of the Italian Renaissance to Northern Europe, and his innovative approach to drawing left a mark on the work of all of his contemporaries.

Michael C. McMillen often likes to work big. A recent installation took up two rooms, one filled with a full-scale replica of a house boat--floating on water. Red Grooms shares the fancy, making nearly life-size subway cars with life-like riders, and a 50-seat, Egyptian-style theater, for example. Now the two artists have teamed up. The result, an installation on view Tuesday to Jan. 10, demands all 10,000 square feet of the Municipal Art Gallery in Hollywood. "Red Grooms, Michael C.

The latest rotation of the J. Paul Getty Museum's wonderful Old Master drawings collection is "16th and 17th Century Dutch Drawings." That modest title masks an exquisite exercise in subtle connoisseurship by co-curators Arianne Faber-Kolb and Stephanie Schrader . More importantly, it also raises absorbing issues of national artistic character.

Few film directors have dipped their quills into more artistic inkpots than Peter Greenaway, the British-born auteur who during the past 30 years has cut a highbrow path through cinema, painting, books, opera and multimedia art installations. His latest project, "Nine Classic Paintings Revisited," unites most of these strands into what the director calls an attempt to "look at painting through the eyes of a filmmaker. " Greenaway's movies (of which "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" is the most famous)

When Earl A. (Rusty) Powell III was named director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art shortly after New Year's Day, 1980, the special exhibition galleries at the Wilshire Boulevard facility were filled with the most astonishing group of Venetian Renaissance paintings to have been assembled in the United States or Europe in years. The dream exhibition of Powell's outgoing predecessor, Kenneth H.

Everybody worries about forgetting. Forget the name of an artist you admired in the '50s and you are sure your brain is turning to mush. Forget where you put the car keys and suspicions of senility claw at the back of the mind. Actually, forgetfulness is a blessing. Obviously, it is a boon to forget all the gauche things you did as a kid.

One more round of high-profile art auctions. One more round of diminished expectations. Apart from a $7.26-million sale of Robert Rauschenberg's "Rebus" and a handful of other relatively high prices, a two-week series of Impressionist, modern and contemporary art sales that came to a close Thursday fell short of predictions. Lackluster sales were no surprise this spring.

Artworks from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles are up for grabs in May auctions. In most cases, the works belong to financially strapped museums that are selling assets to raise funds for other acquisitions, but two paintings from the Met are different. Vincent van Gogh's "Portrait of Dr. Gachet" and Rembrandt van Rijn's "St.
