Jan Provost (1465-1529) was a Flemish painter. He was a prolific master who left his early workshop in Valenciennes to run two workshops, in Bruges and Antwerp.The styles of Gerard David and Hans Memling can be detected in Provoost's religious paintings. The Last Judgement painted for the Bruges town hall in 1525 is the only painting for which documentary evidence identifies Provoost. Surprising discoveries can still be made: in 1971 an unknown and anonymous panoramic Crucifixion from the village church at Koolkerke was identified as Provoost's.   more from wikipedia »
