Hubert van Eyck (1370-1426) was a Flemish painter and older brother of Jan van Eyck. After a long series of wars-when the country became insecure, and the schools which had flourished in the towns decayed-he wandered to Flanders, and there for the first time gained a name. As court painter to the hereditary prince of Burgundy, and as client to one of the richest of the Ghent patricians, Hubert is celebrated. Here, in middle age, between 1410 and 1420, he signalized himself as the inventor of a new method of painting.   more from wikipedia »
