In a chapel of the left transept hangs the "The Raising of the Cross" by Antoon van Dyck. The painting ordered by canon Braye arrived in Kortrijk in 1631 coming from Antwerp where Van Dyck was active. The painter received 600 Florins for this large painting in the style of Rubens.
The French revolutionaries took the painting in 1794 and it was only in 1817 that this work was recuperated.
I agree with other VT members visiting the church that there are more popular paintings by Van Dyck than this one.
I liked the baroque high altar but found no information about it.
