Jan van Eyck. Giovanni Arnolfini and His Wife Giovanna Cenami (The Arnolfini Marriage).
Giovanni Arnolfini was a silk merchant from Lucca in Tuscany, who had settled in Bruges and was a friend of Jan van Eyck, who it seems attended the wedding of Giovanni Arnolfini and Giovanna Cenami. Van Eyck even left his signature on the wall above the mirror: Jan van Eyck was here 1434.
