Van Eyck pioneered painting with oils on wooden panels, while Theophilus promoted painting over treatise. In fact, during this time, oil paints were used to paint wood furnishings, carvings, sculptures, or other outdoor objects due to their durable nature. It wasn’t until the early fifteenth century that oil was first used in paintings to create glazes and layers, eventually reaching Italy where it was incorporated into canvases because of their ease of transportation, cost efficiency, and suitability for large-scale works.
