Campin, Robert (Flemish painter and draftsman, ca. 1375/1379-1444)

Note: Campin was a successful and very influential painter. He is first mentioned in 1405-1406 as a painter in Tournai; given that he purchased citizenship there in 1410, he may have been born elsewhere. There is evidence of some connection with Valenciennes, where the name Campin is said to have been common. Nothing certain is known of his artistic training and background. Campin was clearly popular, receiving commissions from the municipality of Tournai, churches, and citizens. He owned various properties and had surplus capital. Campin ran a workshop, employed assistants and took apprentices; he produced panels, murals, he painted sculptures, and produced banners and other ephemera. He is today generally accepted as the artist whose oeuvre was formerly attributed to the anonymous Master of Flémalle.
