Hugo van der Goes (probably Ghent c. 1430/1440 – Auderghem 1482) was one of the most important Flemish painters of the late 15th century, along with Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Hans Memling and Dieric Bouts. He introduced important innovations such as a new monumentalism, a specific colour spectrum and an individualistic manner of portraiture. The presence of his masterpiece, the Portinari Triptych in Florence, from the late-15th century onwards played a role in the development of realism in Italian Renaissance art.
