The three Limbourg brothers painted landscapes and portraits with a precision that was unheard of in their time. They gave us the first snowy landscape in the history of painting, smoke from a chimney, skies full of clouds, a proper night scene, paintings with perspective. The Limbourg brothers were way ahead of their time with these innovations; their medieval art set the trend for modern painting.
