KIK-IRPA (Belgium) restores masterpiece of European art
The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) in Brussels specializes in the study and conservation of Belgium’s artistic heritage. One of its latest projects is the restoration of the Ghent Altarpiece – aka the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb. Attributed to the brothers van Eyck, the large and complex 15th-century polyptych is considered one of the world’s great treasures. U.S. donors can now support KIK-IRPA’s remarkable work.
