Jan van Eyck

The Arnolfini Marriage

Jan van Eyck (before c. 1395 – 1441) was a Flemish painter active in Bruge and considered one of the best Northern European painters of the 15th century.”The Arnolfini Marriage” is a painting believed to be a portrait of the Italian merchant Giovanni Arnolfini and his wife , presumably in their home in the Flemish city of Bruges. The illusionism of the painting was remarkable for its time, in part for the rendering of detail, but particularly for the use of light to evoke space in an interior.

The online design will allow random exploration for the discovery of works presented in a magazine style.
