The first part of this project is now on line. Twenty IRR assemblies are available in full resolution for anyone to study and download through a special preview website: http://vaneyck.kikirpa.be. Through innovative use of web technology, the user is enabled for the first time ever to study the underdrawings of any two panels of the Ghent Altarpiece side by side.
The future, comprehensive web site is a collaborative project of the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK/IRPA), Lukasweb, and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and is funded through additional support from the Getty Foundation and with support from the Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO). This site will also be hosted by KIK/IRPA and is scheduled to be on line by January 1, 2012.
