    New artist to me, but this is beautiful. The stark lines of the cathedral against the softness of the portrait... Jan van Eyck, "Madonna in the Church". 1437-9. Northern Renaissance. oil on wood

    The name of this painting is, "Madonna in the Church". It was painted in 1437-9 by Jan Van Eyck. This painting is signifacant because it is showing the Virgin Mary holding her son, Jesus in the Gothic Cathedral. Marry is presented as the Queen of Heaven. I like the idea of making Mary larger than the objects surronding her, making her the main subject in the painting. I also like how Jan made it look like the sun was shinning through the windows of the cathedral, making it lighter.
