"Arnolfini Wedding" -Van Eyck

For some reason, this work called "Arnolfini Wedding" by Jan Van Eyck really catches my interest. Van Eyck used the medium oil painting to make enhance realism. I find the dimensions to be different. It's not in 3D but it still looks very real. The part of the painting that really caught my attention, though, was the mirror. If you look at the painting, you can see that Van Eyck painted the reflection of the scene in the mirror which I just find incredible. That seems like it would be so difficult to do. The attention to detail in this painting is also very compelling.
