Dieric Bouts’ "The Annunciation," from about 1450-55, The Getty


HANS MEMLING: Diptych of Maarten Nieuwenhove, 1487, Oil on oak panel, 52 x 41.5 cm (each), Memlingmuseum, Sint-Janshospitaal, Bruges. This panel shows Memling's mastery of a rich vocabulary of allusions in the Flemish tradition of a van Eyck. As in the Arnolfini Marriage, a convex mirror hangs on the wall behind the Virgin and captures the entire scene. We can see the nobleman at prayer and the Virgin at his side.
