Jan van Eyck made an impression with me when we covered him and class and The Portrait of a Man in a Red Turban is one of my favorites as well. I chose this one mainly because of how busy these paintings are as well as the contrast between the left and right on the right panel. The more I researched Crucifixion; The Last Judgment, the more interested I became. According to the Met Museum, the Crucifixion panel is presented as a first hand account. The left panel seems to have three different scene in one, starting from the top down.
