Artwork created using oil paints as the medium. Originally oil paintings were produced on rigid panels following the customary procedures of fresco and tempera painting. Though he wasn't the first to combine pigments with linseed oil, Jan van Eyck, during the 15th century, developed recipes and a new technique involving various mineral pigments, calcined bones and ground galss. The remarkable works he produced began an new era in fine art painting. The techniques of oil painting were further developed by Antonello da Messina (who introduced lead oxide to oils), Leonardo da Vinci, Rubens and many others.
