The Birth of Oil Painting

Limbourg brothers Campin Van Eyck
Van der Weyden Christus Bouts
Justus of Ghent Van der Goes Sint Jans
Memling David

From the Limbourg brothers to Memling, from Van Eyck to Van der Goes, early Netherlandish painting introduced new ways of seeing, new ways of painting. The fifteenth century was a turning point in European painting.

In the Netherlands, as in Italy, the dawn of Renaissance humanism led artists and men of letters to consider Man as the measure of all things. Sacred images were humanized. Scenes of the Nativity expressed a mother's wonderment at the newborn child. The Passion of Christ rendered bodily suffering and the anguish of those who had loved the man who had just died. The Last Judgment set before the viewer all the hopes and fears of the men and women of those rude and rich times. Landscape entered painting, and so did everyday life. But the light that bathed places and moments of life was filled with symbols that gave them meaning.

"The Age of Van Eyck" allows us as never before to go right to the details of paintings, to accede to the essence and also to the anecdote. A virtual museum, a museum in the home, a voyage in time, this CD-ROM is above all an opportunity to make contact with men beyond the common run, creative spirits who explored new avenues of painting, and bequeathed us their vision of the world.
