Jan van Eyck: Madonna in the Church (1425) Flemish
The name of this painting is "The Last Judgement Altar Piece". Was painted by Jan Van Eyck in 1445 and was completed in 1450. Is located in the St Baaf's Cathedral. In this painting I like how the top portion is bright and colorful, making it a happy scene. Then the bottom portion is dark and gloomy, making it look brutal and depressing. I like this painting because it shows two different emotions, happy and then dark and gloomy.
