Stained glass windows can frequently be seen in the background of the works by Jan Van Eyck. Aletta Rambault, an art historian specialised in stained glass windows, examined all paintings by the Flemish master painter and made the link with preserved stained glass windows or fragments from Ghent and Flanders.

During an exhibition in the church of the Great Beguinage of Sint-Amandsberg, she shared her findings with the audience and invited visitors to compare the 19th-century windows in the church with the 15th-century stained glass windows in Van Eyck's oeuvre. A unique approach to the oeuvre of one of the most virtuouso artists in the world.
