Jan van Eyck
Famous Artist from Brugge Belgium

Flemish painter in Brugge (Bruges), One of the founders of the Ars Nova ("new art") of 15th-century northern late Gothic painting, which heralded the Renaissance in northern Europe. This period of Netherlandish art is characterized by a naturalistic style of vivid oil colors, meticulous detail, accurately rendered textures, and the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface.
