The Arnolfini Portrait Jan Van Eyck 1434

This painting is called "The Arnolfini Portrait" accomplished in 1434 by Flemish painter Jan Van Eyck. I chose this painting because it was my favorite painting that I analyzed while taking a Medieval Art and Architecture course last semester. I love all of the disguised symbolism and religious meaning throughout the portrait. I also love how the colors are intensified from the different layers used to make the painting so vivid.
