Hans Memling is the Flemish artist; 1440 is the year,
The Last Judgment is the subject
at the apex of the Rainbow is the Mercy/Judgment Seat
The rainbow separates the two worlds and their different orders; the ethereal golden space of God's Kingdom appears at the top, while the earth, represented as a wide plain bordered in the distance by a chain of mountains, is shown at the bottom. This will be the valley of Josaphat, which, according to the apocryphal authors (Honorius of Autun, James of Voragine) would be the site of the Last Judgement. The time of day is fixed by the dark blue-green night sky.
