Closer to Van Eyck

This segment of the website presents the results of the completed first phase of the Ghent Altarpiece restoration: its exterior panels, which are in view when the polyptych is closed. In the future, the site will be further extended with new imagery revealing developments of the ongoing restoration phases.

This segment of the website presents a large number of paintings by Jan van Eyck and his workshop. These have been documented in the same way as the Ghent Altarpiece, through the VERONA project (Van Eyck in OpeN Access), a pioneer project of the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels), in collaboration with Musea Brugge and Closer to Van Eyck.
