St. Barbara by Jan van Eyck

St. Barbara by Jan van Eyck

This work is the subject of long disputes among scientists who have not come to a common opinion whether this work is a finished drawing or an unwritten picture. Silvery drawing is made by the finest brush on the primed board, inserted in the author’s frame with the inscription: “John van Eyck made me in 1437”.

Behind the back of the beautiful maiden, sitting on a hill with a book and a palm branch of a martyr in his hands, is the construction of a tower, which is its attribute, but treated by van Eyck in a genre key depicting the mass of labor episodes.
