Riassunto: Van Eyck in Detail opens with a biographical note on the artist and an introductory chapter on the technique of oil painting. Organized by theme, it further encompasses subjects as nature, architecture, daily life, fabrics, glass, jewellery and mirrors, and portraits. Van Eycks concentrated observation of nature formed an integral part of his innovation of the art of painting. He studied fauna and flora in their natural environment under specific light conditions. The accuracy with which he realised a breath taking convincing realism is based on a thorough understanding of structure and visual perception. It looks as if everything, from the foreground to the horizon, reveals itself in minuscule detail. However, when observed under magnification, it becomes clear that much depends on suggestion. Van Eyck anticipated on the phenomenon, understood today, that the brain completes visual observation. The authors explain besides the significance of details, also the technique of painting in oil that the artist improved, allowing him to achieve his innovative artistic results. Finally, the reader receives a number of suggestions for further reading.
Sinossi: 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. Opening with a biographical note and an essay on the technique of oil painting on panel, the authors explain the significance of the individual details and how Van Eyck achieved his innovative artistic results. With a preface by contemporary painter Luc Tuymans, this book is an unprecedented look at the work of a popular master.
