Today I was going to do a post about the above painting because there is something odd with it but during research one thing led to another. I seem to have opened another dark corridor in the labyrinth of the quest and there is so much information to go through that I won’t finish it today. Just as in my personal life right now I came across some cases of identity theft and multiple personalities.

In any case, a couple familiar names and places popped up again: Charles the Bold, Hans Memling, Hugo van der Goes, and the chapter of the Golden Fleece at Valenciennes. To cut a long story short, I have reserved a number of books about Hugo, Hans and Rogier at the local library. They only have a couple weekly pickup moments due to Covid regulations so I’ll be able to get them on Tuesday. In the meantime this post is put on hold.
