Online Art History Lessons - Jan Van Eyck

Price : US $25.00

Welcome to my Online Art History Lesson.

This lesson will cover the life and works of Flemish Artist, Jan Van Eyck.

Jan Van Eyck was a very important figure in the art world during the 15th Century.

From his first recognised work, "Crucifixion and Last Judgement diptych" (1420–1425) to his later pieces; "St. Jerome In His Study" (dated 1442) we will take the journey through his style, technique and the impact he had on society and his contemporaries.

We will give special attention to arguably his most famous piece; "Arnolfini Portrait" (1434) (commonly known as the Arnolfini Betrothal or Marriage). We will look at the symbolism and meaning along with his decision to paint oils rather than in tempera. This painting is very significant for a number of reasons, primarily as this was an early work of art actually being signed by the Artist, as Eyck inscribed the words "Johannes de eyck fuit hic 143". (Jan Van Eyck was here).
