An extraordinary series of paintings by 15th-c. Netherlandish artists associated with the mysterious “Master of Flemalle” is on exhibit at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, Germany. The exhibit is here reviewed by Michael Kimmelman in the New York Times, December 11, 2008. Don’t miss the slide show!
This is an important exhibit that raises the issue of connoisseurship and what it means to us today as art historians. And the paintings are grand!
I really like this one. His skin looks so perfect, like porcelain or clay. Each crease is so definite.
