Hubert van Eyck (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɦybɛrt vɑn ˈɛik]) or Huybrecht van Eyck (c.1385/90 – 18 September 1426) was an Early Netherlandish painter and older brother of Jan van Eyck,[lower-alpha 1] as well as Lambert and Margareta, also painters. The absence of any single work that he can clearly be said to have completed continues to make an assessment of his achievement highly uncertain, although for centuries he had the reputation of being an outstanding founding artist of Early Netherlandish painting.[1]
