Lives of the Illustrious Netherlandish and German painters , in which Van Eyck was hailed as a founding father of early Netherlandish painting. Like Brunelleschi, Van Eyck's social standing may have contributed to his reputation. Employed by Philip the Good Duke of Burgundy, he was evidently held in great esteem for he was granted a pension for life in 1435. He may have been well born (there is some evidence that he had a coat of arms) and he was certainly literate, as the tiny writing on one of his surviving drawings shows. Like Brunelleschi, Van Eyck was an artist of some stature in his own day.

The University of Houston's College of Engineering presents this series about the machines that make our civilization run, and the people whose ingenuity created them. T radition has it that Jan van Eyck invented oil painting. He didn't really. Van Eyck was to oil painting what Watt was to the steam engine. Oils came into use a little before van Eyck. But by 1434 he'd used oil to change painting into a whole new art. Jan van Eyck was born sometime before 1390 one of three brothers and a sister, all painters. That was soon after the worst of the Plague. It was just before Gutenberg. It was a world in ferment. We're so aware of the Italian Renaissance, just ahead, that we overlook what was going on in the Netherlands in 1434. Dufay, Ockeghem, and finally Josquin made music into a rich descriptive and subjective medium of communication. One 15th-century writer claimed that nothing older was worth listening to.

The Ghent altarpiece The Adoration of the Lamb The Arnolfini Marriage Photographs by Mark Harden and Carol Gerten-Jackson
Jan van Eyck , the most famous and innovative Flemish painter of the 15th century, is thought to have come from the village of Maaseyck in Limbourg. No record of his birthdate survives, but it is believed to have been about 1390; his career, however, is well documented. He was employed (1422-24) at the court of John of Bavaria, count of Holland, at The Hague, and in 1425 he was made court painter and valet de chambre to Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy. He became a close member of the duke's court and undertook several secret missions for him, including a trip (1428-29) to Spain and Portugal in connection with negotiations that resulted in the marriage (1430) of Philip of Burgundy and Isabella of Portugal. Documents show that in 1432-33 van Eyck bought a house in Bruges. He signed and dated a number of paintings between 1432 and 1439, all of which are painted in oil and varnished. According to documents, he was buried on July 9, 1441.

Jump to: navigation search Portrait of a Man in a Turban (actually a chaperon ), probably a self-portrait, painted 1433 Jan van Eyck or Johannes de Eyck IPA [jɑn vɑn ɛik] ) (before c. 1395 – before July 9 ) was an Early Netherlandish painter active in Bruges and considered one of the greatest Northern European painters of the 15th century. There is a common misconception, which dates back to the sixteenth-century writings of the Tuscan historiographer Giorgio Vasari , that Jan van Eyck invented oil painting . It is however true that he achieved, or perfected, new and remarkable effects using this technique. Jan van Eyck has often been linked as brother to painter and peer Hubert van Eyck , because both have been thought to originate from the same town, Maaseik in Limburg (Belgium) . Another brother, Lambert van Eyck is mentioned in Burgundian court documents, and there is a conjecture that he too was a painter, and that he may have overseen the closing of Jan van Eyck's Bruges workshop.

(Active from 1422, died 1441) See also: Renaissance Art VIEW IMAGE LIST "Jan van Eyck was the greatest artist of the early Netherlands school. He held high positions throughout his career, including court painter and diplomat in Bruges. So outstanding was his skill as an oil painter that the invention of the medium was at one time attributed to him, with his brother Hubert, also a painter. Van Eyck exploited the qualities of oil as never before, building up layers of transparent glazes, thus giving him a surface on which to capture objects in the minutest detail and allowing for the preservation of his colours. Nowhere is this better displayed than in this portrait of Giovanni di Arrigo Arnolfini, a merchant from Lucca and a frequent visitor to Bruges, and his wife Giovanna Cenami. The signature on the back wall - 'Jan Van Eyck was here, 1434' - and his reflection in the mirror has led many to believe that he was a witness to their marriage. The carving of Saint Margaret, the patron saint of childbirth, on the bed, and the presence of the dog - a traditional symbol of faithfulness - accentuate the marital theme." From "The A-Z of Art: The World's Greatest and Most Popular Artists and Their Works" , by Nicola Hodge and Libby Anson "Few people have been so eclipsed by their younger brother as Hubert was by Jan van Eyck. Today, Hubert is the merest phantom; he is that part of the Ghent altarpiece of

Jan van Eyck is considered to be a founder of the Early Renaissance style in the Northern Renaissance. We do not know the exact date and place of his birth, it is believed that he was born in early 1390s in the eastern province of the Netherlands Limburg. He probably was taught the art by his brother Hubert van Eyck, with whom he created the masterpiece The Ghent Altarpiece (1425-1432), which they started in 1425, but after the death of Hubert, his younger brother finished it alone.

Als ich kan (As well as I can).
His artistic prestige rests partly on his unrivaled skill in pictorial illusionism. The landscape of his Crucifixion , with its rocky, cracked earth, fleeting cloud formations, and endless diminution of detail toward the blue horizon , reveals his systematic and discriminating study of the natural world . Van Eyck's ability to manipulate the properties of the oil medium played a crucial role in the realization of such effects. From the fifteenth century onward, commentators have expressed their awe and astonishment at his ability to mimic reality and, in particular, to re-create the effects of light on different surfaces, from dull reflections on opaque surfaces to luminous, shifting highlights on metal or glass. Such effects abound in the Virgin of Canon van der Paele
Despite this legendary objectivity, van Eyck's paintings are perhaps most remarkable for their pure fictions. He frequently aimed to deceive the eye and amaze the viewer with his sheer artistry: inscriptions in his work simulate carved or applied lettering; grisaille statuettes imitate real sculpture; painted mirrors reflect unseen, imaginary events occurring outside the picture space.

Portrait of Jan Van Eyck
Jan Van Eyck was one of the most influential people in his time.
No one ever knew when Jan was born. They think it must have been around the 1390's. Jan died in 1441 and was buried on July 9, that year.
Jan Van Eyck was Dutch. He was born in the province of Limberg, in the region between the Netherlands and what is now called Belgium.
Jan had an older brother named Hubert Van Eyck, who was also an artist. The brothers often worked together; sometimes Hubert would start a painting and Jan would finish it.
Jan worked for Phillip the Good and the Duke of Borgonga.
Jan Van Eyck completed fifteen paintings in sixty-one years.
Jan Van Eyck's most famous painting was Giovanni Arnolfini and his Bride, (painted in 1434).
The Ghent Altarpiece was started by his brother, Hubert Van Eyck, in 1425 (years before he died), then finished by Jan seven years later.
In The Last Judgement Jan and Hubert had to use their imagination. To them the painting meant "The end of time when the dead rise from their graves and are judged."
Another one of Jan's finest paintings was Man In Red Turban (painted in 1433). The sitter could have been Jan himself because there was a slight strain in the eyes as though he were looking into a mirror.

Hubert and Jan van Eyck
Brothers, Flemish illuminators and painters , founders of the school of Bruges and consequently of all the schools of painting in the North of Europe . Hubert was born at Maeseyck (i.e. Eyck on the Meuse) in the , about 1366, and his brother Jan about twenty years later, 1385. They had a sister named Margaret who won fame as a miniaturist. A document of 1413 makes the earliest mention we have of a painting by "Master Hubert". In 1424 he was living at Ghent , and he died there on the 18th of September, 1426. We have no further definite knowledge concerning the elder of the brothers. Of the younger we know that in 1420 he presented a Madonna's head to the Guild of Antwerp , that in 1422 he decorated a paschal candle for the cathedral of Cambrai , and that in 1425 he was at The Hague in the service of Jean Sans Merci. Afterwards he went to Bruges and to Lille to the court of Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy , as peintre et varlet de chambre. He was already a man of some influence at court, and he travelled in the embassy charged to ask the hand of Isabella of
