Art historians believe that this work - an oil-on-wood - was created by two brothers (Jan and Hubert van Eyck) between 1425-1435. 

Known as “The Three Marys at the Tomb,” it measures 72 x 89 cm (28.35 x 35.04 inches) and is currently maintained at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, in Rotterdam (The Netherlands).

“The Three Marys” are:

  • Mary, the mother of Jesus
  • Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha 
  • Mary Magdalene

The other figures, in the painting, are an angel and sleeping guards.
