Second picture

Saturday very bad weather, during my stroll in Bruges.
I took this picture between two snow showers.
For a nice composition, I have cropped the picture, the traffic signs are disturbing, but I want posting the original picture if workshop.

History of the painter Jan van Eyck:
Jan van Eyck is between approximately 1420 and 1441 revolutionized the history of painting in the Netherlands. Presumably he is trained by his older brother Hubert, whose Ghent Altarpiece he completes in 1432 after the death of Hubert in 1426. Jan van Eyck's work makes an abrupt end to the sophisticated "international style" that dominates the art at that time. With his precise observation and naturalistic representation of reality, its radiant colours and oil painting technique, which he mastered perfectly but not invented, Van Eyck shows a virtuosity that will be equalled hardly. As a diplomat and court painter to the Dukes of Burgundy, he moves his entire life in the highest circles.
