History of the St. Luke Drawing a Portrait of the Virgin Mary by Rogier van der Weyden

Rogier van der Weyden - St. Luke Drawing a Portrait of the Virgin Mary

Rogier van der Weyden
St. Luke Drawing a Portrait of the Virgin Mary", c.1435-1440
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, USA

Rogier created another great work during his early period in Brussels, roughly between the middle of the 1430s and the beginning of the 1440s: the painting of St Luke Drawing a Portrait of the Virgin, known as the St Luke Madonna.

St Luke the Evangelist was also the first Christian painter, and had painted the Virgin Mary from life. As a consequence he was the patron saint of painters, and in many towns and cities was regarded as patron of their guilds. As a result, most of the major pictures of St Luke were destined for the altars of these communities; Rogier's painting was probably an altarpiece for the Brussels guild. Via
