Haarlem globetrotting

Behind the scenes

I visited the cathedral of St Bavo in Haarlem this week.

From the Gallery's own collection comes this beautifully crafted exercise in perspective and an exploration of the delicious way the shafts of sunlight find their way into the cathedral.

And here is what it looked like on a sunny morning week.
