Tournai General: 17 reviews and 25 photos
Favorite thing: This painter from the 15th century, mostly known as Roger van der Weyden, is one of the masters of the early Renaissance painting.
He was born in Tournai around 1400, that's where he entered the studio of Robert Campin, another well known master of this period.
He later became a city painter in Brussels in 1436
In the local museum of Fine Arts, you could admire one of his painting, the Virgin and Child with Jean de Gros.
This statue by Wolfers (1936), standing close to the cathedral, has directly been inspired by another of his painting, St. Luke Drawing a Portrait of the Virgin Mary, also known as St. Luke Madonna.
