Jan van Eych’s Madonna and Child in a Church of 1425 provides another example of how these wonderful flemish churches operated at that time.
The full import of van Eych’s theological statements in this picture become evident only from a close study of the details. For example, the church depicted here is oriented. The Altar is in the chancel behind the Rood Screen in the East end. How or why then is the church lit with sunshine from the NORTH?
