    Scholar of Northern Renaissance painting. Hasse was part of the debate in the nineteenth and the earlytwentieth centuries on the identity of Rogier van der Weyden. Since 1568 Giorgio Vasari claimed “Rogier of Bruges” was a student of Jan van Eyck and a separate “Rogier van der Weyden of Brussels” was the painter of the justice panels in the town hall in Brussels, the identity and separation of these two painters existed. Karel Van Mander continued this distinction of the two Rogiers in his 1604 Schilderboek. Hasse sided with them differentiating the two while others considered the works to be of one artist. Alexandre Joseph Pinchart later identified a “Rogelet de le Pasture” (van der Weyden in Flemish) as an apprentice to Campin (Lane).
