Our study of this monumental altarpiece will encompass the rich cultural, social and political context of its production and consumption during the reign of Philip the Good, continuing with an examination of its complex iconography as understood by Pre-Reformation audiences. Van Eyck's influence on his Italian contemporaries and the chequered history of the work itself will also be explored.Back to List Make Booking Enquiry
In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
