  His statue stands on the sq that bears his name

Van Eyck, as I mentioned earlier, was the greatest Flemish Renaissance artist ever. In 1432-33, this chap bought a house over here in Bruges and was a court painter as well as a diplomat. According to documents , Van Eyck died elsewhere but nonetheless, a statue was erected in memory of this famous resident. It stands on a square today that bears his name.

Go to Jan van Eyckplein 2 ( Jan van Eyck Square )
