What we love about the Ghent Altarpiece, finished about 1432, is that it's kind of a turning point between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It still has the joy of the faith from the older times, but it also has the human details and absolute skill mastery of what will become the competitive genius of Renaissance painting. We love this luminous piece. It is attributed to the Early Flemish painters and brothers Hubert and Jan van Eyck

The Latin above Mary's head, HEC E SPECIOSIOR SOLE + SVP OEM STELLARV DISPOSICOEM LVCI, is from the Book of Wisdom, 7:29: "She is more splendid than the sun; she outshines all the constellations; she is more radiant than light itself."

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
