Our speciality: Van Eyck’s Ghent Altarpiece

Despite the fact that we see the Ghent Altarpiece almost on a daily base and this for the past 8 years, it doesn't cease to fascinate and inspire us. On the contrary! Since the foundation of Ghent-Authentic, the Ghent Altarpiece is the major focus and inspiration of Ghent-Authentic. My mission has always been to open up art, in this case medieval religious art which is traditionally considered as quite unaccessible, to a bigger ‘audience’, to make it inspiring and relevant today. In short, I see myself as a ‘a bridge’ between the scholars and the public. We like to share our knowledge and passion for it with you. The Ghent Altarpiece has enough 'flesh' to stand on its own or it can be perfectly integrated in most of our tours.
