"The Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden (c. 1400?-1464), born in Tournai as Rogier de le Pasture, was one of the most influential artists of the Northern Renaissance. With his dramatic tableaux and austere, almost sculptural figures, Van der Weyden achieved an unprecedented emotional clarity in both his religious paintings, including his scenes from the Passion of Christ, and his highly refined portraits, among them the famous Portrait of a Lady in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C." "This sumptuously illustrated volume is the first comprehensive study of Van der Weyden's work in twenty-five years. Author Dirk De Vos, who has incorporated all the latest scholarship, illuminates longstanding questions concerning Van der Weyden's early years and a number of problematic attributions."--Jacket.
