Acquired by the National Gallery in 1842, the Arnolfini Portrait informed the Pre-Raphaelites’ belief in empirical observation, their ideas about draughtsmanship, colour and technique, and the ways in which objects in a picture could carry symbolic meaning.
The exhibition will bring together for the first time the 'Arnolfini Portrait' with paintings from the Tate collection and loans from other museums, to explore the ways in which Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882), Sir John Everett Millais (1829–1896) and William Holman Hunt (1827–1910), among others, were influenced by the painting in their work.
This exhibition is organised by the National Gallery in collaboration with Tate Britain.

The sight or look of the wife was reworked... Experts say the way she looked up in this portrait make us conclude they were from the same economic possition. However, if we see trough the infra -red the sight was initially different !
I wonder why Van eyck decided to change it .. Due to her death ...?
It is my understanding that in the mirror is a witness to a marriage between this couple, I believe that during this time marriage could be performed by someone to witness it. Your not mentioning this could mean I'm misinformed. Could you comment on this? Thanks very much. Tom Bolger.
It looks like the only parts that were reworked were the two human figures. Does this bolster the argument of those claiming that Van Eyck used optical devices to render all the other stuff in the painting? The chandelier, the drapery, the room itself and all its details seem to have been put in place correctly on the first go. Considering the relative lack of realism in the face and hands of the two figures (and the stylized treatment of the dog) I think I'm beginning to believe these old masters did use optical devices.
