Hans Memling, horses and riders & Madonnas

Salve friends and visitors,
Hans Memling was one of the many amazing painters of the Northern Renaissance - XV century prolific painter of astonishing imagination and  skill.

Turin altarpiece 


Saint John triptych

Seven Joys of the Virgin 




Resurrection (of Budapest) 

and for its beauty - the Portinaris - husband and wife


and some samples of his Madonnas - nota bene several of his Madonnas contain magnificent oriental (Turkish and Persian?) carpets


and Adam and Eve
