(b. ca. 1420, Amiens, d. 1489, Valenciennes)

Virgin and the Man of Sorrow

Oil on panel, 44 x 30,5 cm (each)
Groeninge Museum, Bruges

The diptych with the Virgin and the Man of Sorrows was probably copied at the end of the fifteenth century from a work attributed to the famous panel and miniature painter Simon Marmion of Valenciennes. It shows the same mannered, rather soft style we find in other paintings from northern France.
