Flemish School, 15th century, male.

Born 1399 or 1400, in Tournai; died 18 June 1464, in Brussels.

Painter. Religious subjects, portraits.

Originally known as Rogier de la Pasture, this artist later changed his Walloon name to the Flemish Rogier van der Weyden, the name by which he is generally known today. It was long believed that he had been born in Brussels because he studied under Jean van Eyck, his elder by 13 years. It has been shown more recently that Van der Weyden was born in Tournai and, with Jacques Daret, was the pupil of Robert Campin. At the moment when the Van Eyck brothers were painting their masterpieces in Ghent, another school, one of the greatest representatives of which was Robert Campin, was flowering in Tournai. Recent research has made it possible to identify Campin with the anonymous artist originally known by the name 'Master of the Mérode Altar' and later as the 'Master of Flémalle'. While we known the names of Campin's pupils, we do not know those of his masters. The quality of his work speaks for itself in paintings like the ...

German, 15th – 16th century, male.

Born 1434, in Nuremberg; died 30 November 1519, in Nuremberg.

Painter, draughtsman. Religious subjects, portraits.

Nuremberg School.

Michael Wohlgemuth was initially a pupil of his father Valentin, with whom he also worked for many years. He later became pupil and assistant to Hans Pleydenwurff, whose widow he was to marry. Wohlgemuth was a person of some importance in his home town, and was apparently regarded as the most eminent painter of his time. He is thought to have travelled to the Netherlands in about 1450 and then to have stayed in Munich. The first work known to be by him is the retable of the high altar in the church of St James in Straubing. In 1479, he was chosen to paint the altarpiece in the church of Our Lady in Zwickau, a work considered to be his masterpiece. He painted the altarpiece in the church at Feuchtwangen in 1484. Between 1486 and 1490, Albrecht Dürer was his pupil. In the view of modern scholars, Wohlgemuth's fame was to be overshadowed by that of his pupils, to whom several works once thought to be his have been reattributed. An example is the Perinzdorfer altarpiece, long considered one of his best works but now believed to have been painted by his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff and assistants. Similarly, the decoration of the town hall in Goslar, for which undertaking Wohlgemuth was rewarded with the title of citizen of Goslar in 1501, may have been executed by his pupils. He was also a wood carver or employed artists in his studio who were. He made woodcuts and drawings for engravings. Together with his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, he illustrated two books published in 1491-1494, one of which was Schedel's ...
