VAN EYCK. Martens, Maximiliaan and Annick Born.
Van Eyck in Detail.
Famed for his focused observation of nature, Flemish painter Jan van Eyck (c. 1395-1441) studied fauna and flora in their natural environment and under carefully chosen lighting conditions, and then achieved a breathtaking and convincing realism in his paintings. Each panel is a collection of minuscule details rendered with superb clarity from foreground to background-or at least that is the impression at first glance. As this book reveals, that is precisely where Van Eyck's exceptional talent lay: He understood that the human brain is able to supplement visual perception where necessary. Here, details from Van Eyck's paintings are organized by such themes as nature, architecture, daily life, fabrics, glass, jewelry and mirrors, and portraits. This is an unprecedented look at the work of a popular master.
