WEYDEN, Rogier van der
(b. 1400, Tournai, d. 1464, Bruxelles)

Crucifixion Triptych (detail)

c. 1445
Oil on oak panel
Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

Unlike the Veronica on the panel by the Master of Flémalle (Städelsches Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt), the saint here appears as a young woman in the bloom of youth. The type and execution of the face are very like another Mary Magdalene image of about the same date (National Gallery, London).
