Abstract

The article focuses on the Tallinn (Reval) altarpiece of St. Mary's altar of
the Brotherhood of the Blackheads, attributed to the Bruges Master of
the Legend of St. Lucy, which arrived in the late medieval city in 1493.
The altarpiece is noteworthy for its very dense network of luxurious
details like silk, velvet and gold cloth from Italy, ceramics from Spain,
tapestries from Netherlands and an oriental carpet from Anatolia. Early

Netherlandish painting is notable for the very detailed, texture and
light-sensitive rendering of everyday and luxury objects, from which
the works of Jan van Eyck are the best examples.
