Jan van Eyck (d. 1441) was one of the most significant painters of the fifteenth century. He worked in Burgundy and is most well known for the Ghent Altar-piece, a monumental work of tremendous realism and detail. Jan van Eyck came from a family of artists and was known to have worked alongside his brother, Hubert. The van Eyck brothers likely worked together on the Ghent Al-tarpiece. Philip the Good, the Duke of Burgundy, was one of their most significant patrons. Some of van Eyck’s most important paintings include Portrait of a Man in a Turban (1433), which might be a self-portrait, and the Arnolfini Portrait (1434).
