(c. 1415-75). Early
Netherlands painter who united in his work the
influence of the brothers Van Eyck and of Rogier
van der Weyden, possibly his master. An
objective painter, he was concerned with a
detached observation of reality and an
intellectual approach to spatial problems, to
perspective and composition. This is evident in
the liucharisl triptych where a contemporary
banqueting scene is transformed by an austere
geometry into the pathos of The Last Supper. The
Hades panel of The List Judgement triptych
reveals a more tender lyricism in expression and
characterization of resignation and grace.
