In this publication, Pächt is concerned with one of the key problems in the history of western art: the comet-like appearance of a new kind of painting in Northern Europe at the end of the fourteenth century.

In this volume, the author is concerned with one of the key problems in the history of western art: the comet-like appearance of a new kind of painting in Northern Europe at the end of the 14th century. Never losing sight of the visual evidence before him, Pächt examines the work of Jan and Hubert Van Eyck, the Master of Flémalle and their contemporaries in the context of a changing intellectual world, the passage from medieval thought to a percep- tion that recognizes and embraces all facets of visible reality. 'Pächt's ability to analyse visual data and his capacity to link cause and effect remain a model of art historical discourse.'
