From School Library Journal
Grade 8 Up–A novel set around Jan Van Eyck's famous painting titled The Arnolfini Portrait. While little is known about the painter, historians have confirmed that he did work for the court and may have had some clandestine duties associated with his position. In this story, set in mid-15th-century Bruges, Giovanna Cenami, 14, has recently lost her mother, and circumstances have forced her to assume a more mature, womanly position in her family. She attends a social soiree with her father where she sees a mysterious troubadour with an angelic voice and falls in love. Unfortunately, her father is in jeopardy of financial ruin, and he decides to move up her eventual betrothal to a wealthy, but older, family friend, Giovanni Arnolfini. Pressures from her father, secret notes passed through her maid from...

From Library Journal
This luscious book is true eye candy, but it's not just another pretty picture book. The text, compiled by the exhibition curator at the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, Belgium, is revealing as well as refreshingly stirring. Written for the general reader, this volume accompanies the large-scale exhibition Jan Van Eyck, 1430-1530 held at the Groeninge Museum last spring. Intended to illustrate the revolution in oil-painting sparked by the work of van Eyck and to present the interaction between the north and south of Europe during this pivotal period, this book invites readers to look, reflect, and draw conclusions on their own. Sixteen signed chapters, such as "Art Markets," "Princes, Patrons and Eclecticism: Naples and the North," and "A New Look on the World: The Invention of Landscape," set a big-picture stage. The...

The Art of Arts: Rediscovering Painting

November 1900
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
The lovingly crafted little tome The Art of Arts might become a cult classic if there are enough Jan van Eyck fans out there--or enough readers who can chew their way through 775 footnotes--to make this work of special genius even an underground bestseller. It is filled with delectable details (for example, that an image of a mill in a landscape connotes a wanton woman, complete with a page of explanations why) and myriad perspicacious observations. In discussing such masterworks as van Eyck's Madonna of Chancellor Rolin, author Anita Albus draws the reader into a vanished world of alternative perspectives, painterly depths of color and atmosphere, and the mesmerizing minutiae of late-medieval and Renaissance symbolism. The last chapter of the book, "Of Lost Colors," combines metallurgy, history, meticulous scholarship, and...

Van Eyck and the Founders of Early Netherlandish Painting (Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History)
Otto Pacht
1872501281
January 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In this volume, the author is concerned with one of the key problems in the history of western art: the comet-like appearance of a new kind of painting in Northern Europe at the end of the 14th century. Never losing sight of the visual evidence before him, Pächt examines the work of Jan and Hubert Van Eyck, the Master of Flémalle and their contemporaries in the context of a changing intellectual world, the passage from medieval thought to a percep- tion that recognizes and embraces all facets of visible reality. 'Pächt's ability to analyse visual data and his capacity to link cause and effect remain a model of art historical discourse.'

Early Netherlandish Painting: From Rogier Van Der Weyden to Gerard David (Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History)

December 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Otto Pächt's studies of the Early Netherlandish painters are the fruit of a lifetime's research. Following his book on the brothers Van Eyck and their circle, this volume deals with the next generation of artists, the great figures of the 15th and early 16th century: Rogier van der Weyden, Petrus Christus, Aelbert van Ouwater, Dieric Bouts, Justus van Gent, Hugo van der Goes, Geertgen tot Sint Jans, Hans Memling and Gerard David. In the tradition of the Vienna School, Pächt's approach put emphasis on formal analysis and on direct contact with the works of art themselves. Taking certain key works by each artist as examples, he discusses every facet of the work including style, mood, iconography, symbolism and construction of space. The chapters are linked by the theme of imitation and continuation: the author...
