The Mystery of Jan Van EyckStreaming Video - 2009
The Mystery of Jan van Eyck tells the stories of some of the Flemish master's most significant paintings-The Ghent Altarpiece, The Arnolfini Marriage, The Dresden Triptych, Portrait of Cardinal Niccolo Albergati, and Portrait of Baudouin de Lannoy, to name only five-with quiet authority and deep respect. Composed of stills and highly detailed close-ups supported by informative analysis and period music, the program is itself a museum piece-and an indispensible part of any library's collection of art videos pertaining to the Northern Renaissance. Background on van Eyck's life and career is also included, as well as insights into the visionary van Eyck's painting techniques and worldview.
