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
