Hans Memling

c. 1430-1494 Belgium (German born)-Northern Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Hans Memling from Frankfurt did his apprenticeship in Cologne art before moving to Brussels. He worked in the atelier of Rogier van der Weyden and later settled in Bruges where he lived for the remainder of his life. He enjoyed a successful career in Bruges doing portraits and religious works. There is an indication of influence from the style of Jan van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden in his works.

His portraits were especially popular in Italy. Several of his paintings were commissioned by the Medici family of Florence along with numerous businessmen of Bruges and agents of the Hanseatic League. The Shrine of St Ursula in the Hospital of Saint John is just one of his many noted religious works.
