Explanation

Rogier van der Weyden (ca. 1400-1464) was a Flemish painter. He and his contemporary Jan van Eyck are considered the greatest examples of the early Dutch school in painting. Weyden's altarpieces and portraits are painted with an emphasis on a plastic representation of the figures and depiction of their pathos and expression. Major works by him include "The Descent from the Cross" (ca. 1435) and "The Middelburg Altar" (1450-52).
