Overview

Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden (c. 1400- 1464) 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 and secular portraits. This sumptuously produced and gorgeously illustrated book is the first comprehensive study of van der Weyden's work in 25 years. Synthesizing the latest scholarship and reproducing every known painting as well as hundreds of details and comparative works, it will become the standard reference on the artist for decades to come.
