Dyck shows her looking heavenwards because true charity combines love of one’s neighbour with love of God. – National Gallery

The child looks with eyes of understanding
At his mischievous brother as if his eyes were
from beyond the background of the sky
The woman gazes heavenward
There is the cloud above her brow
