OT: THE FOUNTAIN OF GRACE. A Panel from the circle of Jan Van Eyck 23 October 2018 to 27 January 2019


Screen-Shot-2018-11-11-at-3.01.54-PM-900x444The Fountain of Grace is the only work from the circle of Van Eyck to be owned by the Museo del Prado, and also one of the most intriguing. The specific artist is unknown, as are its precise iconography and origin, and these questions have given rise to a great deal of speculation since it entered the Museum nearly two hundred years ago. Recent restoration and research, the motive for this exhibition, has revealed interesting new data that enable us to progress in our study and knowledge of the piece.

Restoration sponsored by Fundación Iberdrola España.

Begoña and I had yesterday the opportunity to visit this exhibition also. Highly recommended.
