The London National Gallery's collection of fifteenth-century Netherlandish pictures -- one of the largest and most important in the world -- contains more than fifty paintings, including Jan van Eyck's famous Arnolfini portrait. This fully illustrated volume reproduces each of the National Gallon., early Netherlandish paintings in full color, accompanied by numerous details, comparative illustrations, and technical photographs.
Art historian Lorne Campbell assembles highly sophisticated scientific and historical evidence to reconstruct in detail how these painters lived and worked, organized their studios, gathered and employed reference materials, used pigments and media, and marketed their pictures. Campbell's analysis of the artists' techniques and working practices marks a major advance in current understanding and appreciation of the extraordinary achievements of the early Netherlandish painters.
