Figure 35

Tournai workshop, Memorial for Jacques Taintenier and Jeanne Blancharde, c. 1408, Tournai limestone with traces of polychromy. Saint-Jacques, Tournai (photograph: author). As with wooden carved altarpieces, this type of stone memorial featured small-scale figures set against a flat ground. In most cases the original polychromy/gilding has been entirely lost or covered in later paint.
