Hugo van der Goes: Spiritual Vision & Realism

Image coming soon.

Jonathan Jones blogs about Hugo Van der Goes' Trinity Altarpiece, currently on view in the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh.

Jones writes that the Altarpiece is one of Van der Goes' "finest extant works… the paintings reveal a king and queen at prayer, flanked by saints, in a church that is painted in depth – a real, resonant space. The stillness and gravity of the people, the rich details of their dress and the books from which they pray, share the sombre poetic realism of this artist's most famous masterpiece, the Portinari Altarpiece… Spiritual vision and acute realism are mystically at one."
