Van Eycks (Artists)

There was an important family of Early Netherlandish painters who were Flemish with the surname Van Eyck. Though born and raised in the valley of the Meuse, they ultimately established their professional domicile in Ghent and in Bruges, where they changed the traditional habits of the earlier schools, remodelled the earlier forms of Flemish design, and introduced a substantial revolution into the technical methods of execution familiar to their countrymen. These painters were responsible for many famous works of the 15th century.

Family members included: Hubert van Eyck, Jan van Eyck, their brother Lambert van Eyck, and sister Margareta van Eyck, and probably Barthélemy d'Eyck from the next generation.
