Northern Renaissance - 1. The Supreme Art
"Series in which Joseph Leo Koerner argues that the Renaissance in Northern Europe - more so than its Italian counterpart - laid the foundations of modern art. In the early 15th century, the remarkable oil paintings of Flemish artist Jan Van Eyck transformed a lowly craft into the supreme art and began an image revolution that would change art forever."
The analysis of the Arnolfini Portrait offered after the 48 minute mark is astonishing. It is a remarkable thing to realize once again I've been looking at something for more than thirty years and never seen it until now.
