An Eyckian drawing at the exhibition The Road to van Eyck

On 13 October the exhibition The road to van Eyck will open at the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. The curators of the exhibition seek to offer an insight into the period that preceded the art of Jan van Eyck (Circa 1385-90-1441)

The drawing with the Crucifixion of Christ, a highlight of the exhibition The road to van Eyck, is being represented as a newly discovered drawing of Jan van Eyck and/or his studio. Yet, evidence does exist that this drawing originates after the death of Jan van Eyck. Till-Holger Borchert (Chief conservator at the Groeninge Museum in Bruges) provides an explanation.
