Petrus Christus (c 1416-c 1472/3)

Sierra Club


Netherlandish painter. Christus is thought to have been a pupil of Jan van Eyck and to have completed some of his works. Christus was certainly influenced by van Eyck, and his copies and variations helped to spread the Eyckian style.

Christus's work is more summary than van Eyck's, however, his figures sometimes rather doll-like and without van Eyck's feeling of inner life. The influence of Rogier van der Weyden is also evident in Christus' work. [Adapted from WebMuseum]
