Enjoy this amazing painting and as my friend stated:
The 'Celestine' painting is believed - but not proved - to be by Barthélemy van Eyck. He was a nephew of the famous Hubert and Jan van Eyck, who painted the stunning Ghent altarpiece. Hubert and Jan were the Harlem Globetrotters among the painters of their time. Not even the later renaissance artists could match their skill on, for instance, perspective and geometry.
I should think the expertise of this painting is the proof of the above statement. It has always been attributed to "The French School" of the 16th Century but no where could I find anything in French art of the time to match this.
Not to be contentious, but if the perspective is so skilled, why is the perspective of the throne so obviously not in sync with the rest of the painting? Is there a significance to this?
