Master of the St. Ursula Legend

Master of the St. Ursula Legend (Flemish, active 1470—1495) is the name given to an unidentified Flemish artist who also created a series of paintings showing the story of St. Ursula for the convent of the Black Sisters in Bruges, modern Belgium.

Many artists at this time did not sign their finished works. Scholars closely examine an anonymous artwork for details and techniques that appear in other artworks. Based on these similarities, experts are sometimes able to attribute several works of art to a specific artist, even if that artist remains unnamed.
