JAN VAN EYCK
"Als Ich Can"

KHM, 10 July to 20 October 2019

The exhibition presents three of the circa twenty extant works by Jan van Eyck, offering a glimpse of the art produced during the reign of Duke Philipp the Good, when the Burgundian Low Countries witnessed a unique flowering of courtly and urban civilisation.
