Ghent Altarpiece: Art, History, Science and Religion

Ghent Altarpiece: Art, History, Science and Religion


The Ghent Altarpiece, also known as the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, is recognised as one of the most influential paintings of all time due to its status as the world’s first major oil painting and its important religious symbolism. For the first time, this book brings together a range of insights on Hubert and Jan Van Eyck’s masterpiece.

Coinciding with an exhibition at Ghent’s Museum of Fine Arts, this beautifully illustrated book includes new details uncovered during the piece’s restoration project invisible to the naked eye.

It presents combined perspectives on the alterpiece’s depiction of Christianity from a wide range of disciplines, including art historians, philosophers, religious studies scholars, mathematicians and optics specialists.
