The painting methods Flemish artists in the 15th and 16th centuries
The lecture will focus on the painting practices of Flemish artists of the 15th to 16th century. During this period oil painting emerged as the dominant painting medium; prior to this the majority of artists worked in egg tempera. The uniqueness of the Flemish technique is that it employed both egg tempera for luminosity and oil paint for depth and richness, giving a jewel-like quality to the paintings in this period.
