About this item

Sadler examines the late medieval altarpiece through a miniaturist's lens, for these large polyptychs are inhabited by a teeming group of figures that enact the entire Passion of Christ or scenes from the life of the Virgin. The tableaux vivants invite the viewer to suspend belief and enter the sculptural micro-drama, she says; the carved figures beckon viewers into the space. She argues that people of the 14th and 15th centuries did not distinguish between the senses as sharply as modern people do, and the haptic nature of vision is one of her main themes here.
