NeverMoreA study of van Eyck by 20th-century art historian Otto Pacht. It 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, Pacht examines the work of Jan and Hubert van Eyck, the Master of Flemalle and their contemporaries in the context of a changing intellectual world, the passage from mediaeval thought to a perception that recognizes and embraces all facets of visible reality.
