HUBERT and JAN VAN EYCK:  The Ghent Altarpiece (wings closed), 1432, Oil on wood, 350 x 223 cm, Cathedral of St Bavo, Ghent. The realism of the figures of Adam and Eve at the far right and left on the open altarpiece struck contemporary viewers forcefully, and this style continues on the outside of the panels when the altarpiece is closed.
