Description - Robert Campin by Felix Thurlemann

This comprehensive study is dedicated to the work of Robert Campin, the great Flemish artist known as the Master of Flemalle, who, along with van Eyck, is considered the founder of the Netherlandish school of painting of the Early Renaissance. Robert Campin, the teacher of Rogier van der Weyden, was among the first European painters to break with the more artificial International Gothic style, focusing instead on the connection between religious and secular life. In his study of Campin, Thurlemann sheds light on this important era of European painting, a period when the depiction of the supernatural shifted to everyday settings, the fascinating use of symbolic messages first appeared, and the use of oils opened up a new world of subtlety and differentiation in the artist's palette. Based on research and illustrated with colour plates and details of Campin's paintings, this text is designed to enable the art world to examine an artist whose superior talent, despite its long-lasting anonymity, was never itself in doubt.
