Christus, Petrus


Christus, Petrus
(ca. 1410-ca. 1472)
   Flemish painter, a disciple of Jan van Eyck, some of whose unfinished works he may have completed. His paintings demonstrate some of the earliest examples of the use of linear perspective in northern art. His Portrait of a Young Woman (ca. 1450) has the meticulous attention to detail typical of Flemish painting but also has a sensuous spirit and an inward-ness not common in his time and place.
