Most of the works of Rogier van der Weyden consist of triptychs, diptychs or polyptychs, each including more than one panel. Some are dismembered and the parts are kept in different museums. Some panels are only fragmentary remains.

This list features the paintings accepted as authentic by Dirk de Vos (2000). They are listed chronologically following the datings of de Vos. All works are executed in oil on oak panels unless otherwise mentioned.

The temporarily rejoined diptych was displayed in the loan exhibition 'Unfolding the Netherlandish Diptych' at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen in Antwerp in Fall 2006/Spring 2007.
