Between Emotion, Devotion and Polemic. The Art of Rogier van der Weyden
(Joost de Geest) The Low Countries - 2000, № 8, pp. 302-304
Little is known about the majority of Flemish primitives. Although the names of so many painters have been preserved in archives, there are few works which can be attributed with certainty. But no one painter gives rise to more discussion than Rogier Van der Weyden. In 1435 he became official painter to the city of Brussels, where he died in 1464. But an endless debate has started about the period before that, the period when he was in Tournai. In Dirk de Vos' substantial book, published on the occasion of the six hundredth anniversary of the birth of the painter, one discovers Van der Weyden in the manner in which his contemporaries discovered his works.
