Jan van Eyck : the play of realism by Craig Harbison( Book )

17 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jan van Eyck's surviving work comprises a series of painstakingly detailed oil paintings of astonishing verisimilitude. In a fascinating recovery of the neglected human dimension that is clearly present in these works, Craig Harbison interrogates the personal histories of the worldly participants of such masterpieces as the Virgin and Child with George van der Paele, the Arnolfini Double Portrait and the Virgin and Child with Nicolas Rolin. With the aid of abundant visual evidence in color and in black and white, Harbison reveals how van Eyck presented his contemporaries with a more subtle and complex view of the value of appearances as a route to understanding the meaning of life. "I found this an enthralling study"--"The Sunday Telegraph "A fascinating investigation into the nature of the great pioneer's clients ... some fine photo details"--"Art Review Copyright © Libri GmbH.

Van Eyck in detail by Annick Born( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 254 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 78 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 houses'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?
