Jan van Eyck
Jan van Eyck is considered to be a founder of the Early
Renaissance style in Northern Europe. It was once
believed that Jan van Eyck invented painting with oils.
While that is a myth, his technique in painting with oils
is exceptional. His paint is so transparent that his works
have a unique, almost luminous sheen.

Édouard Manet
Born into a bourgeoisie household, Édouard Manet
was fascinated by painting from a young age. He
was a leading artist in the transition from realism to
impressionism; but, unlike conventional painters of his
time, he strove to illuminate the rituals of both common
and bourgeoisie French people by depicting everyday
scenes of city life. He died in Paris in 1883, leaving
behind 420 paintings and a reputation that would
forever define him as a bold and influential artist.
