De dood van Maria.

Death of the Virgin.

Hugo Van der Goes

About this artwork

The vision of heaven above Mary's deathbed the unearthly colours in the soft blue light and the enclosed space give this image of the emotional group of apostles a sense of unreality as if we were witnessing a dream or delusion. The figures are filled with sorrow.
