This lecture, by art historian Paula Nuttall, looks at two of the most influential early Flemish painters: Rogier van der Weyden (c1399-1464) and Hans Memling (c143094). Van der Weyden’s masterpiece is arguably The Descent from the Cross (c1435) in the Prado, Madrid. His legacy can be seen in the work of Memling, who moved to Flanders from Germany, where he built his name painting both portraits and diptychs for personal devotion and several large religious works.

This is one of a series of six talks which explore Dutch and Flemish art, from Jan van Eyck to Johannes Vermeer;
