This close look at van Eyck’s jewel-like masterpiece of 1434 considers the intrigue and wonder it sparked when it first went on show at the National Gallery in 1843. Reflections: Van Eyck and The Pre-Raphaelites 2 October 2017 – 2 April 2018 Sunley Room Find out more: http://bit.ly/2wBPZiu 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.

I put a few days ago a quiz about this work, which, in addition to testing the knowledge, also presents some curiosities. ;) See when you can: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2Z8FkZaTD8

It seems like , becouse the scens with Christ from woman's side reprezents Christ dead, it seems that she was allready death at the time van Eyck painted this . Also, the candle up in the chandelliere , place on her side is not lightening ! So, this it seems like a comemorative portrait of her , ordered by her's still liveing husband !

This was a great summary, I read a whole book about this painting and you still managed to mention things that were unknown to me.

"Shamrock Tea" by Ciaran Carson has a plot which revolves gorgeously around this painting. Highly recommended.
