Lecture 1 - Blending New Traditions: Hans Memling

Fri, May 14, 2021 · 11:00 AM · BST
About This Webinar

Memling settled in Bruges in 1465, having previously – it is thought – worked in Rogier van der Weyden’s workshop in Brussels. His art melded Rogier’s fashionable style and imagery with that of Bruges’ great painter, Van Eyck, hence ensuring him a steady flow of clients. This lecture looks at the diverse works he produced in the span of a 30-year career, including the St Ursula Reliquary Casket and the St John Altarpiece, and his paintings for foreign clients; one of these, the Pagagnotti Triptych, is the first Netherlandish painting to employ Italian renaissance motifs.
