The Last Judgment, Triptych by Hans Memling

Weighing of the Souls, Triptych of the Last Judgment

The Last Judgment by Hans Memling

Hans Memling isn't Hieronymus Bosch but he was absolutely one of the best primitives of his time.
And his altars still are the precious of some Gothic Churches. The triptych The Last Judgement belonged a long time to a Gothic Church in Gdansk. After the Second World War it has been moved to The National Museum in Gdansk. What you see in the Church St. Mary's Church in Gdansk is a copy, a great one.
