Portraiture: Van Eyck, Van Der Weyden Research Paper

… Portraiture: Van Eyck, Van Der Weyden and Fouquet

Jan van Eyck, (1390-1441), has been touted as the pioneer of Dutch fine painting and the preeminent orchestrator of the oil painting technique; although some argue that he did not invent it but rather tested the possibilities of not allowing one color to totally dry prior to another application.

Art History of the Western Term Paper

… In contrasting the Mona Lisa to the High Renaissance portrait of Raphael's Baldassare Castiglione, a number of obvious differences become apparent. First, the portrait by Raphael is against a plan cloth-drop background. The Mona Lisa has a complex dreamlike landscape behind the figure of the Mona Lisa. The lines are more harsh throughout the portrait, though it still shows many of the wonderful aspects of portraits in Renaissance art, such as the move towards real flesh-tones and anatomically correct figures. The Castilgione, of course, is well documented as the subject of his portrait, while the Mona Lisa is still arguably another woman, or more than one person morphed together, it is unknown. The choice by Raphael to paint Castiglion is significant; this subject is one…. [read more]
