Coming next month is a new exhibition at the National Gallery celebrating the works of Bartolomé Bermejo (c. 1440 – c.1501) and Hispanic Antiques intend to be the first through the door to view this Medieval master. Bartolomé was a Spanish painter who adopted Flemish painting techniques and conventions. Born in Cordoba, he is known for his work in the Kingdom of Aragon, including what is now Cataluña and the Kingdom of Valencia. His real name was Bartolomé de Cárdenas: the name Bermejo, which means auburn in Spanish, possibly relates to his hair colour. Bermejo may relate also to his name, Cardenas; Cardeno means purplish.
