  • ""Why did paintings suddenly take on a nearly photographic realism around 1420? In this controversial program, noted artist and art critic David Hockney investigates how, 400 years before the invention of the photograph, painters were using simple cameras-the camera lucida, camera obscura, and convex mirror-to capture realistic images. Hockney visits Florence, Bruges, and Ghent, examining dozens of paintings by such masters as Jan van Eyck, Vermeer, Holbein, Caravaggio, and Velazquez.

It appears that artists ranging from Italian Caravaggio to Dutch virtuoso Jan Vermeer, actually traced their subjects onto the canvas using optical devices made of lenses and mirrors. This could solve some of the mysteries of painting from the 15th century onwards as well as explain the explosion in photographic detail that painting experienced around this time."@en
