Stockt, Vrancke van der (or van der Stoct)
(before 1420-after 1489)
   The painter Vrancke van der Stockt is believed to have been a journeyman of Rogier van der Weyden and it is known that he helped the latter on several of his larger canvases while working on his own productions. He became wealthy and bought considerable property in and around Brussels. After van der Weyden's death, city officials vested him with the title of painter to the city notwithstanding the decision taken in 1436 that the post would remain vacant following the death of the illustrious Rogier. Vrancke van der Stockt died sometime after 1489 in Brussels. Most of his paintings are anonymous.
