Eyck, Jan van (Netherlandish painter, ca.1390-1441)

Note: He was among the most influential Netherlandish painters of the northern Renaissance. He served as court painter to two powerful patrons, first John of Bavaria, Count of Holland, and then Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy. He perfected the new technique of painting on panel with an oil-based medium. He appears also to have produced illuminations for manuscripts. His works portray precise illusions of reality on the levels of space, atmosphere, texture, and the effects of light. Netherlandish painter; NAF gives his dates as 1390-1440.
