The Arnolfini Marriage Cross Stitch Pattern
Jan Van Eyck

This fine-art cross stitch chart was created from the painting The Arnolfini Marriage which artist Jan Van Eyck painted in 1434. It is a portrait of Giovanni di Nicolao Arnolfini, a member of a merchant family from Lucca living in Bruges, and his wife, Giovanna Cenami. There is some discussion as to whether or not it was intended to be a record of their wedding. It is suggested it could be a celebration of their married life or the close relationship between the couple. There are secular and religious items in the painting with several levels of meaning. The chandelier with one lit candle signifies matrimony, the removed shoes suggest sanctity, the small dog is a symbol of fidelity, the mirror on the back wall infers witnesses are present, the crystal prayer beads suggest piety of the couple, and the oranges on the window sill indicates innocence prior to Adam and Eve’s fall from grace. This painting is one of Van Eyck’s greatest masterpieces and resides at the National Gallery in London.

This chart is available in two formats. Select which one you want with the drop down box when you place you order.

5 of 5 The Arnoldini Marriage Chart by Jan Van Eyck May 26, 2020
Reviewer: Jenn Bell from Oshawa, ON Canada  
This is my favorite painting of all time. We studied it very closely in my Art History class in college and have always wanted my own print. Even better, I now get to create my own masterpiece! The chart is very clear and concise with large symbols/boxes which will be very easy to highlight. Two thumbs up and I can’t wait to start this only 18 ct fabric.
