Van Eyck in detail by Annick Born( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famed for his focused observation of nature, Flemish painter Jan van Eyck (c. 1395-1441) studied fauna and flora in their natural environment and under carefully chosen lighting conditions, and then achieved a breathtaking and convincing realism in his paintings. Each panel is a collection of minuscule details rendered with superb clarity from foreground to background--or at least that is the impression at first glance. As this book reveals, that is precisely where Van Eyck's exceptional talent lay: He understood that the human brain is able to supplement visual perception where necessary. Here, details from Van Eyck's paintings are organized by such themes as nature, architecture, daily life, fabrics, glass, jewelry and mirrors, and portraits. Opening with a biographical note and an essay on the technique of oil painting on panel, the authors explain the significance of the individual details and how Van Eyck achieved his innovative artistic results. With a preface by contemporary painter Luc Tuymans, this book is an unprecedented look at the work of a popular master

Van Eyck : the Arnolfini portrait by Stefano Zuffi( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck one of the best-known and reproduced works of art in the world? Exactly what mystery do we happen upon when we tiptoe into a house's most private room, the bridal chamber? One by one, we stumble across hidden, unexpected details, meticulously reproduced thanks to the sensational realism of the painter's lens. Within the modest dimensions of an "intimate" scene, the artist manages to condense a microcosm of the universe and a study of daylight, and invites us almost physically into the room. The convex mirror painted on the back wall, a marvellous contrivance that enlarges the space and the figures, turns us into actors instead of spectators, magically transported into that timeless room. Finally, who are the personages portrayed? Are they really the Arnolfini couple?
Hubert and Jan Van Eyck by Elisabeth Dhanens( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in German and English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fame of the Van Eyck brothers has transcended the limitations of time and space. Their works are a source of light -- inexhaustible, life-giving -- which still illuminate Western civilization, they express, with the greatest artistic sensibility, their own genius and that of the Low Countries of their time. The author has brought a keen critical approach to this study of the immortal painters. Rather than merely summarizing the vast amount of existing literature on the Van Eyck's, she has discarded the errors of the past, winnowed out much suspect information, and suggested possible new topics of inquiry. Among the areas new light has been shed upon are: the lives of all the members of this illustrious family; the supposed invention of oil painting by Jan; and the brothers' collaboration on the masterwork The Altarpiece of the Mystic Lamb. Special attention is of course given to Jan, the better-known of the two; an extensive listing and analysis of his paintings is presented. The illustrations are of the highest quality, as is necessary when presenting work of such fine detail as the Van Eycks'. -- Inside jacket flap
