Resurrection of the Dead with the Virgin and St. John


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The resurrection of the dead in the foreground is accompanied by the prayers of the Virgin and St. John. The landscape teems with tiny angels lifting up the chosen and devils bedeviling the terrified souls destined for Hell. The design has been attributed to Dirk Vellert, an important Flemish designer for stained glass in Flanders (in present-day Belgium). The nudes show the influence of Raphael's desgins for tapestries then been woven in Brussles. However, th landcape is very Flemish, full of details to engage the eye and involve the viewer in the story.
