Jan Van Eyck’s Arnolfini Double Portrait
Week 8 Discussion Template
Here is my main post for the Week 8 Discussion “Van Eyck and Analyzing Art in the Northern Renaissance”
My interpretation of the Arnolfini painting is in agreement with . . .
There are only a few things to say here either you:
- Agree with Sayre that the portrait represents a wedding ceremony
- Agree with Koster that the portrait represents an engagement/betrothal ceremony
- The theory that the portrait is a memorial to Arnolofini’s dead wife
Be VERY clear which interpretation you believe, just use one of the above statements
Here’s why . . .
Discuss in some detail WHY you made the interpretation you did, this should be at least 3 or 4 sentences and assess which parts of the painting suggest your interpretation
Symbolism I see in the ‘Arnolfini Portrait’
There is a lot to discuss here, please assess several symbolic elements and then discuss what the symbolism is and why and whether or not you agree with it
Symbolic elements I would put in my own ‘me and my significant other portrait’
Please come up with a few items and then EXPLAIN why they are symbolic for you
Of course once you make your main post, please reply to at least 2 other student posts, thanks
