Hans Memling: Portraiture, Piety and a Reunited Altarpiece

Hans Memling was one of the most important, prolific and versatile painters active in 15th-century Bruges, and one of the leading artists of the Early Netherlandish School. This beautiful exhibition catalogue explores his famous triptych of the Crucifixion and highlights links between panel painting and manuscript painting in 15th-century Flemish art, drawing connections, for example, between the grisaille Annunciation on the outer wings of the altarpiece and the grisaille figures that decorate so many manuscripts painted in Bruges during Memling s lifetime. Underscoring this great artist's impact, the book also examines Early Netherlandish drawings from the Morgan's collection, works ranging from the early compositional studies and figure drawings to a group of portrait drawings made in the generation after Memling and under his influence.
