The Anolfini Marriage (1434).


1.  The Picture

The Arnolfini Marriage was the first full length double portrait in a naturalistic interior and is a fine example of Jan van Eyck’s technique. His superlative mastery of oil painting rapidly gave rise to the legend that he invented the process. Painted in 1434 the work is in oil on an oak panel, measures 84.5 x 62.5 cm, and hangs in the National Gallery, London.
