Art and letters gave it its chief renown, however, for Bruges was the home of Memling, and of the van Eycks.
It is reasonable to suppose that this stands for Hans (Memling).
Van Eyck saw with his eyes, Memling begins to see with his soul.
Her face is even more like an old Memling portrait than is the picture.
The van Eycks and Memling were the lineal descendants of these artists.
The great painter Memling was for a time a patient in the hospital.
It contains seven chapels, in two of which are fine pictures by Dierich Bouts formerly attributed to Memling.
And yet, without changing either theme or method, Memling was going to say something more.
Guicciardini says that Memling was Roger's pupil, but there is no documentary evidence to show that such was the case.
Very beautiful specimens are to be seen in the pictures of Van Eyck and Memling for instance.
