Jan Van Eyck By Jp sullivan

Jan Van Eyck was born in Maastricht ,Netherlands in the year 1390.

He spent most of his life in Bruges, Belgium.

There is no evidence that Jan Van Eyck had any education.

Most of his life was spent painting for Duke Philip.

He painted pieces such as the Ghent Altarpiece, Crucifixion and Last Judgement, and Madonna in the Church.

His patron was Duke Philip of Burgundy.

This piece is called Crucifixion and Last Judgement.-

This piece was created in 1426.

This piece is located at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

This piece is significant because it shows a strong message, it shows the death of Jesus as well as Heaven and the buried.

I find this piece interesting because of how well it portrayed and how strong the message is.

This piece exemplifies humanism because God doesn't control our lives we make our own choices but this shows how God chooses what happens to us after our lives depending on what we did during our life.
