PROPERTY OF A NEW YORK ESTATE
In this painting, we look from a low point into the spacious interior of a magnificent church. A shadowed foreground opens onto a light-flooded and soaring space whose archways and columns pull the eye into the depths of the composition to the to the towering windows beyond. The ornate golden organ that rises above a stone figure between the columns of the staircase at left is balanced on the right by an impressive tomb, adorned with sculpture, elaborate marble stone, and and coats of arms, suggesting the entombed is of impressive or historical lineage. Contributing the the lively impression of the rest of the interior are the myriad of figures that move throughout the space. In addition to the two figures on left the stairway, the elegant group gathered in the central foreground, the two peasants near the tomb, and the single white dog, a group processes in a line from left to right across the composition and a number of religious female clergy are gathered in prayer in front of an empty pulpit in the distance.
