Van Eyck

Van Eyck is the name of a family of Flemish painters in whose works the rise and mature development of art in western Flanders are represented.

Though bred in the valley of the Meuse, they finally established their professional domicile in Ghent and in Bruges; and there, by skill and inventive genius, they changed the traditional habits of the earlier schools, remodelled the primitive forms of Flemish design, and introduced a complete revolution into the technical methods of execution familiar to their countrymen.
