The zoom function invites you to enjoy and study the high resolution images in microscopic magnification and the split-screen function allows to compare different types of images of Van Eyck’s oeuvre, including the Ghent Altarpiece.

This New Year’s present to art professionals and amateurs alike is the result of the VERONA project led by the Centre for the Study of the Flemish Primitives at KIK-IRPA. The Centre’s art historians and the specialized photographers of the Imagery unit will continue their travels throughout Europa and abroad until 2019, which will amount to the online availability of the complete oeuvre of Jan van Eyck and his workshop.

The VERONA-project is financed by the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO) in the framework of its BRAIN-programme and is realised with the support of Musea Brugge and the collaboration of Closer to Van Eyck.
