Ghent, a cultural cocktail on a human scale
"It is the largest van Eyck show ever attempted, and it’s so unlikely to be repeated that the museum might as well use “now or never” as a subtitle."
Wall Street Journal
"Van Eyck is showing us a vision of the eternal that is nothing short of heavenly. So prepare for that pilgrimage; there is a miracle to be witnessed in Ghent."
