A medieval artist built up his panel painting in various layers. This video shows the process step by step. Starting point is a detail from the Norfolk Triptych (1414-1420) from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, which is on show in the exhibition The road to Van Eyck (October 13, 2012 till February 10, 2013). By combining research into the paint layers with material-technical data such as x-ray and infrared photography, we have been able to make an accurate reconstruction of this detail. The reconstruction was made by art historian and painting restorer Charlotte Caspers. Reconstruction: Charlotte Caspers Camera and editing: Wouter Schreuder Subtitles: Einion
http://AncientMagicArtTools.com A Very interesting interview with David Hockney, where he explains and demonstrates the use of camera obscuras and camera lucidas in the artwork of the Old Masters chronicled in his book Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the Lost Techniques of the Old Masters.
Artist Michael Chelich shares his special technique for painting just like the old masters. This is a "crash course" in painting with the 3-dimensional quality often seen in museums - and it's tuition free! look for the remaining videos of Michael's demo, my demo of the girl seen in this video, and others - as production is completed.

Learn more about the exhibition Man, Myth, and Sensual Pleasures: Jan Gossart's Renaissance on view at the Met October 6, 2010--January 17, 2011: http://tinyurl.com/JanGossart The first major exhibition in forty-five years devoted to the Burgundian Netherlandish artist Jan Gossart (ca. 1478-1532) will bring together Gossart's paintings, drawings, and prints and place them in the context of the art and artists that influenced his transformation from Late Gothic Mannerism to the new Renaissance mode. Gossart was among the first northern artists to travel to Rome to make copies after antique sculpture and introduce historical and mythological subjects with erotic nude figures into the mainstream of northern painting. Most often credited with successfully assimilating Italian Renaissance style into northern European art of the early sixteenth century, he is the pivotal Old Master who changed the course of Flemish art from the Medieval craft tradition of its founder, Jan van Eyck (ca. 1380/90--1441), and charted new territory that eventually led to the great age of Peter Paul Rubens (1577--1640).

The Three Mary's at the Tomb surfaced around 1850 in Antwerp. Immediately it was attributed to Jan van Eyck. But at the major exhibition of Flemish primitives that was held in Bruges in 1902, it was presented as the only surviving painting by Hubert van Eyck, Jan's mysterious elder brother. Since the Second World War, there has been doubt: Jan? Hubert? Or perhaps some other painter?
In the run-up to the major exhibition The Road to Van Eyck in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, The Three Mary's at the Tomb was examined once more and restored by Annetje Boersma and Eva van Zuien. This video shows the restoration process and the findings of the restorers about the composition of the paint and the working method of the painter. In addition, curator Friso Lammertse sets out on an investigation; he visits three locations that have played an important role in the history of the painting: Vierhouten, Richmond and Bruges. He is confronted with some unexpected surprises.
