The National Gallery's new exhibition about Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites will explain how the 'Arnolfini Portrait' helped them to forge a radical new style of painting.

The 'Arnolfini Portrait' embodied the Pre-Raphaelites' belief in empirical observation, and helped to solidify their ideas about draughtsmanship, colour and technique, and about how objects in a picture could carry symbolic meaning.

The exhibition will include the 'Arnolfini Portrait' and loans from the Tate, and other museums, including works by Rossetti, Millais and William Holman Hunt.
