    Experience the Flemish masters. Van Eyck programme 2020. The Burgundian Age

    The Flemish Masters project has been established for the inquisitive traveller who enjoys learning about others as much as about him or herself. It is intended for those who, like the Flemish Masters in their time, are looking to immerse themselves in new cultures and new insights. The Flemish Masters project focuses in 2020 on the life and legacies of van Eyck, as well as many other notable artists of his time. In 2020 the Ghent altarpiece is coming home. Since its completion in 1432, millions of visitors from all over the world have travelled to Ghent to adore the Ghent Altarpiece, painted by Jan and Hubert Van Eyck. Gone missing, absconded in the course of several wars, threatened by fire, dismantled, copied, smuggled, censored, attacked by inconoclasts, hidden, ransomed, rescued and stolen time and again... no work of art has been menaced and desired as much as the Mystic Lamb.
