Elegant brocade, tears on the cheeks of a contemplative Madonna, or snow-covered peaks on a distant horizon: fifteenth-century Netherlandish painters discovered entirely new motifs worthy of painting. Robert Campin, the “Master of Flémalle,” and his student Rogier van der Weyden were early pioneers of this development. With discussions of over forty selected masterpieces, this audio CD introduces the work of these two brilliant artists and the circumstances surrounding them. Narrator J. J. Gordon guides the listener on an entertaining journey through the visual world of the fifteenth century.

This audio tour contains stimulating art-historical analyses of paintings that are of interest to both the uninitiated and connoisseurs of fifteenth-century Netherlandish painting. All of the paintings discussed are reproduced in the accompanying volume. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2364-0)
