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.

I thoroughly enjoyed the two times that I've come to speak at Dillington House. I found the audiences to be engaged, receptive and welcoming. Somerset needs a venue like this, I hope it goes from strength to strength and I'd love to come back and speak again. Gavin Pretor-Pinney
