This beautiful painting Madonna Enthroned, was done by Roger van der Weyden. The artist was born in Tournai as ‘Rogier de le Pasture’ (Roger of the Pasture) in 1399.
From 1436, he held the title of ‘painter to the town of Brussels’. This was a very prestigious post because Brussels was at that time the most important residence of the splendid court of the Dukes of Burgundy.
This painting is in the Museum Thussen-Bornemisza, Madrid.
