  • Doornik 1427 - 1432
    On March 5, 1427 'Rogelet de le Pasture' begins his 'apresure' in the studio of Robert Campin; there is a suspicion that in 1427 Rogier van der Weyden did not enter the workshop of Campin as a 28-year-old, but as a companion who already was skilled and took stylistic influences from outside (Tournai); this would mean that Robert Campin and Rogier van der Weyden mutually influenced each other and could explain the difficult-to-see dividing line between the oeuvres of both artists (Dhanens 1995, p. 97, Kemperdick/Sander 2008200909, p. 59, 61, 64ff)
  • Doornik 1432 - 1435
    On August 1, 1432, 'maistre Rogier de le Pasture' became a master in Tournai (Dhanens 1995, p. 98).

  • Rome 1450
    According to Bartolomeo Fazio (Bartholomeus Facius), 'Rogerius Gallicus' made a pilgrimage to Rome in the jubilee year 1450 (Dhanens 1995, p. 109-110). He also mentions a number of works that Rogier would have painted in Italy, namely a Bathing Lady in Genoa, a Descent from the Cross in Ferrara where Lionello d'Este was Margrave until 1450 and two Passion scenes in Naples (not preserved).
