The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK/IRPA) and its Centre for the Study of the Flemish Primitives are honoured to announce the Van Eyck Studies Colloquium in Brussels on 19-21 September 2012. The colloquium is intended for art-historians, curators, conservators and scientists studying painting from the Southern Netherlands in the 15th century.
This is the eighteenth in a series of prestigious conferences for the ‘Study of Underdrawing and Technology in Painting', initiated in 1975 by the Université catholique de Louvain-la-Neuve (UCL). The Triennial colloquium is alternately organized by the KIK/IRPA, the UCL and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
This 2012 colloquium has been dedicated to Van Eyck because of the recent research developments in his oeuvre, particularly in the Ghent Altarpiece that underwent an urgent conservation treatment in 2010 and will be restored in the following years by the KIK/IRPA.
