Organised by the Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent, “Jan van Eyck and the Burgundian Court” is a large-scale exhibition dedicated to the life and work of the Flemish master, Jan van Eyck. The Court of the Duke of Burgundy, Philip the Good, attracted the most talented artists of the day and did a lot to promote cultural and artistic endeavours. Jan van Eyck was a particular ‘star’ at the time, being very much appreciated both as an artist and designer, but also as an adviser and diplomat.

Unique Experience

The exhibition aims to create an unique experience in which the sumptuousness of the court is brought to life through paintings, sculptures, drawings, tapestries and miniatures. Each is an example of the extraordinarily inventive imagination and the refined aesthetic appreciation of the period. Interactive technology will be employed within the exhibition to strengthen this relationship, and to underscore salient points. Visitors, you will be witness to the most complete van Eyck exhibition ever staged: the outer panels of the Ghent Altarpiece will be exhibited alongside other masterpieces by van Eyck, and those of his contemporaries, in a once-ina-lifetime experience.
