Painter: Vranke van der Stockt (Flemish, ca. 1420--1495)
Date: ca. 1490

In Bruxelles au XVme siecle, Brussels, 1953, pp. 73-84; Steinmetz, ' Das Altarretabel in der altniederlandischen Malerei.

(attributed to Vrancke van der Stockt)

Notes: The painting was sold in Amsterdam at Sotheby's Mak van Waay Sale, 9 June 1977, lot 41. Formerly, it was held in Amsterdam, in the H.A. Wetzlar Collection. According to the online WGA, van der Stockt 'became a master in the Brussels Guild of St Luke in 1445 and in the same year inherited the workshop of his father, Jan van der Stockt (d. after 23 May 1444), where he had doubtless trained. In 1453 he witnessed a deed in the house of Rogier van der Weyden, which suggests that the two were friends and possibly collaborators. Van der Stockt succeeded van der Weyden as official painter to the town on the latter's death in 1464; in 1468 he worked in Bruges on the decorations for the wedding of Margaret of York and Charles the Bold. Van der Stockt was a town councillor in 1465, 1472 and 1475 and the head of the Confraternity of St Eloy from 1471 to 1473, both of which posts indicate the social standing he had achieved alongside his artistic activities. On 10 August 1489 he and his wife, Catherine de Moeyen, drew up their will, which mentions two sons, both painters. Bernaert van der Stockt (b. before 1469; d. after 1538) inherited two-thirds of the stock and drawings in the studio, the other third going to Michiel van der Stockt (b. before 1469). '

Gallery notes by M. E. Wieseman from the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin, Ohio, state: 'There are no documented paintings known by van der Stockt, but he is recognized as the most direct follower and popularizer of the art of Rogier van der Weyden. A fairly large, homogeneous group of works--both paintings and drawings--have been attributed to him based on their relationship to the Redemption triptych in the Museo del Prado, Madrid (inv. 1881-1892), first isolated and identified as a work by this follower of van der Weyden in the 1920s.'

The Road script

The Road script

The Weinstein Co.'s "The Road” is a trip through time starring Viggo Mortensen, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Robert Duvall and Charlize Theron.

"The Road" Takes Fresh Approach to Post-Apocalyptic Genre: Ever since God flooded out the entire human race in the early pages of Genesis, literature has abounded with stories of the apocalypse. For generation after generation, from The Book of Revelations to The Stand, we have obsessed over the end of the world, how it will come to pass, and what, if anything, we can do to stop it. Now that humankind has reached a point where the End could conceivably happen in an afternoon, our glimpses into this theoretical future are all the more intriguing. And they've never been more important.

The Road, directed by John Hillcoat (The Proposition) and based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men), is a dark, poignant story of a father and son journeying through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, withstanding harsh weather, malnutrition, and under the constant threat of marauders, thieves and cannibals. Their goal is simple: to carry on.

Those looking to sink their teeth into mindless disaster-porn (not that there's anything wrong with that) can get their fix elsewhere. The Road is a smaller, more penetrating film that draws strength from its intimacy and its ability to do so much with so little.

Viggo Mortensen gives an emotional tour de force as the embattled father; look for him on the red carpet come March. I thought Kodi Smit-McPhee was impressive and genuine as the son, and takes on the task of being in literally every scene with rare fearlessness. Charlize Theron, Robert Duvall and Guy Pearce give small but highly memorable performances, Duvall in particular, whose portrayal of a withered old man journeying all alone will haunt you.

I received draft versions of this script in order to work on an aspect of pre-production of the film for The Weinstein Company. My highlight marks are on it exactly as I made them at that time. I have correspondence between me and the director and numerous staff and film personnel to corroborate my fact-checking about the production, update their bios, etc. I was hired to provide a service to the film before there was any footage to be seen. They sent me copies of the Final Shooting script and these were used for me to make notations in order to interview the actors and the producers.

Copies of this script are for sale elsewhere on the web. If any of my Flickr buddies is interested in obtaining one of mine, please contact me:
