About this artwork

The woman featured in 'Portrait of a Lady' by Rogier Van Der Weyden remains unidentified. Her attire is pretty simple, hinting that she is likely a lady of the house, not a high-ranking noblewoman. An identical, but superior quality, portrait of her is displayed at the Washington National Gallery of Art. This suggests that a member of van der Weyden's team was probably responsible for creating this piece. The print of this painting is an exact colour replica of the original one and it has been given the thumbs up by the National Gallery. Every time you buy one of these, you are contributing to supporting the museum's work.

About the artist

Born around 1399 or 1400, Rogier van der Weyden was an acclaimed artist and illuminator, whose life journey came to an end in 1464. The details of his initial training and early work remain uncertain. However, at the age of 27, Rogier joined the studio of Robert Campin, who was the head of the Tournai painters' guild. He stayed under Campin's tutelage for five years before gaining the status of an independent master within the guild.

Van der Weyden's work is characterised by the detailed realism that he adopted from Campin. In his mid-thirties, he moved to Brussels, his wife's hometown, and swiftly became the city's appointed painter courtesy of the city council. This led to many public and private commissions. Van der Weyden ran a large workshop, staffed with numerous assistants including his son, Pieter, who later took over his father's role as the city painter in Brussels.

Van der Weyden's renown quickly spread beyond local boundaries, earning him the respect of international clientele. He spent a year in Italy, creating artworks for prestigious families such as the Este in Ferrara and the Medici in Florence. His impact was not limited to his immediate artistic circle; his dramatic and deeply emotional paintings became an inspiration for every Netherlandish painter in the subsequent generation.
