This is a portrait of Giovanni Arnolfini and his wife at their home.  It has many titles, one of them being The Arnolfini Portrait.  This was done in oil paints by Jan van Eyck.  The mirror on the back wall that reflects the room (and the artist) is very unique.  The inscription on the wall translates into "Jan van Eyck was here 1434".
