By HUBERT VAN EYCK, a celebrated Flemish Painter, born at Maaseyk, on the borders of the Meuse, in 1366, and died in 1426, aged 60; he was esteemed the founder of the Flemish School, being an artist of irregular skill and genius. Eyck originally painted in destemper [sic], and after the use of oil was discovered by his brother John, he was celebrated for some curious paintings in that way. His most esteemed painting is the four and twenty Elders adoring the Lamb, as described by St. John, in the Revelations; the design contains three hundred and thirty figures, with such a diversity of countenances as excites wonder even to this day.
