Mediaeval Ships Part II In Painted Glass and on Seals Part 2
The second in a series, this article examines two images of ships in the stained glass of the parish church of Villequier, near the mouth of the Seine. The window in question was dedicated in 1518, and the ships are part of a visualization of the life of St. John the Baptist. One ship is depicted at anchor, the other underway, and both are illustrated in this article. Details included and omitted by the unknown artist are discussed and compared to those of other contemporary ship images.
