Jan van Eyck

Jan van Eyck was a real innovator. His work defined the history of painting. He is primarily known for his exquisite handling of oil paint and is considered the father of oil painting. One of the benefits of working in oils, combined with his ground-breaking craftsmanship, was that he was able to copy every aspect of reality, from fabrics to precious gems and even natural phenomena, making his paintings extremely realistic.

Jan van Eyck was one of the first painters to carve out an individual identity for himself, instead of merely being a craftsman. He signed his paintings - which was quite unusual at the time - and even had his own motto: 'als ich can' (meaning 'as well as I can').

Only twenty works by Jan van Eyck have been preserved for posterity. Each work by this artist is therefore extremely precious.
