In Vermeer's 'The Art of Painting' the black and white tiled marble floor in The Art of Painting is a complete invention by Vermeer. Delft houses in those days were never that richly decorated with marble. Vermeer took the visual idea from the Delft city hall.

In "Holy Virgin in Glory" painted in 1430 by Robert Campin is a fascinating painting.
What is the darkly dressed man doing there as he is kneeling before Saint Peter? Peter is holding the keys of heaven. To his right is another saint who is holding a book and an object that looks much like an oversized strawberry. What are the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus doing up in the sky? Note the haircut with bald skull of the kneeling man.
The painter Robert Campin (also known as the Master of Flemalle) and this outstanding painting is in Musée Granet, Aix-en-Provence, France.
