Hans Memling's Simultaneous Paintings

Here are two beautiful and utterly fascinating paintings by the 15th century painter Hans Memling. Each painting simultaneously shows various mysteries from the life of Christ and salvation history. May I recommend you click on them to look at them each in detail.

"Advent and Triumph of Christ," Hans Memling, 1480

"Scenes from the Passion of Christ," Hans Memling, 1470-71
