How was one of the most important masterpieces from Early Netherlandish painting created? What are the symbols behind it?
Who were the people who stole it, where did it end up and how was it returned to its original location? Who stole the “The Just Judges” in 1934, and why has it never been found?
This fascinating book about the Ghent Altarpiece takes you on a journey through the painting’s history. It combines fluently written texts full of anecdotes with historically accurate articles by Harry De Paepe and wonderful illustrations by Jan Van Der Veken.
A feast for the eyes and a must for anyone with a heart for Ghent, the Flemish Masters, history or fascinating, well written stories!
