On View Now: Jan van Eyck's Madonna at the Fountain
Jan van Eyck's Madonna at the Fountain, a generous loan from the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunst, Antwerp, is on view at the CMA in the exhibition Myth and Mystique: The Cleveland Table Fountain through Sun, Feb 26, 2017.
Jan van Eyck, considered to be the most significant Northern Renaissance artist of the 15th century and a revolutionary master across northern Europe, even within his own lifetime, was court painter to Philip the Good, duke of Burgundy.
Van Eyck’s virtuoso technique, exploiting the use of oils, light, sumptuous draperies, and an almost photographic realism, placed the visible world at the heart of his painting and changed perceptions forever. There are only about 25 paintings surviving today that can be confidently attributed to Jan van Eyck; the Madonna at the Fountain is one.
As most of van Eyck's works are rarely permitted to travel, take advantage of the special opportunity to see this stunning work through Feb, 26, 2017!
