Dr Warwick, Reader in History of Art for Edinburgh College of Art at the University of Edinburgh, explores the key pictorial development of Renaissance art as an understanding of painting as a mirror reflection of the visible world. The motif of the mirror within the painting would become a visual metaphor of the art and skill of painting, from Van Eyck’s Arnolfini portrait to Velazquez’s Rokeby Venus, and beyond.
