Possibly active in Delft and Gouda as well as Amsterdam, the Master of the Virgo inter Virgines is the most independent of Hugo van der Goes's North Netherlandish followers. While he is keenly aware of the earlier artist's psychological insights, Hugo's North Netherlandish disciple adds his own austerity and pessimism.
