Art History Meme: 5/8 artists

Jan van Eyck
ca. 1390 - 1441.  Flemish.

"Jan van Eyck is credited with originating a style of painting characterised by minutely realistic depictions of surface effects and natural light. This was made possible by using an oil medium, which allowed the building up of paint in translucent layers, or glazes."  [x]
