Master of the Saint Ursula Legend (1475-1500) was a Flemish painter active in the fifteenth century. His name is derived from a polyptych depicting scenes from the life of Saint Ursula painted for the convent of the Black Sisters of Bruges; the city appears in the background of a number of the paintings, in which the belfry and tower of the Church of Notre-Dame. Consequently it is possible, given the stages of construction of the belfry, to determine that the altarpiece was painted either before 1483 or somewhere between 1493 and 1499. Today the panels have been dispersed to a number of museums around the world.   more from wikipedia »
