Proud citizens of Ghent allow themselves to be inspired
In 2020, Ghent will also show how Van Eyck has left his mark on the city, six centuries on. We must not forget that the Ghent Altarpiece is so much more than a piece of world heritage. It is a live icon that continues to fascinate and inspire. Van Eyck's legacy permeates the whole of Ghent and has become part of the city's DNA. Generation after generation, he continues to inspire new masters, whose works we are proudly putting in the spotlight in 2020.
