Jan Van Eyck, Portrait of Giovanni Arnolfini and his Wife, tempera and oil on wood, 1434 (National Gallery, London)Jan (and Hubert?) Van Eyck, Ghent Altarpiece or The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb,tempera and oil on panel, 11' 5" x 7' 3" (closed panels), Cathedral of Saint Bavo, Ghent, Belgium, completed 1432Second Life correspondents Max Newbold and Sez Zabelin, discuss the closed Ghent Altarpiece (see the next video for a discussion of the open altarpiece) on the Vassar campus in Second Life. Unfortunately, it is not a recreation within the Vijd Chapel in Saint Bavo's cathedral in Ghent. We start with the recreation so we can show how the altarpiece opens and closes and so that the listener can get a sense of the scale of the altarpiece (it measures 11'5" feet tall). After the introduction in Second Life, we illustrate our discussion with details that show the altarpiece's magnificence.
