Van Eyck in Detail

A detailed analysis of the multiple layers and meanings of Van Eyck’s work. After studying flora and fauna, Jan van Eyck strove to achieve breath-taking realism in his natural sketches, rendering minute details with superb accuracy.

However, as this book reveals, beneath the realistic aesthetic lies something more. We learn that the artist’s technique and subject matter reveal themes of daily life, portraits, architecture and more. Van Eyck in Detail cross-examines a selection of works alongside biographical notes and in-depth analyses of Van Eyck’s chosen medium of oil on panel.

Some book reviews
The Guardian:
“The story of Van Eyck is one of the most mythicised in art history. For centuries it was told as gospel fact that Van Eyck was the inventor of oil painting, and that he discovered it because he dabbled in the occult science of alchemy.”
