up close and personal with an Van Eyck

Oh my gosh how cool is this!!! A friend of mine shared this link and I just had to share too!

I’m totally one of those people that gets asked to take a step back when I’m examining a painting in a museum. Now I can get my nose as close as I’d like with the only risk being getting a few smug marks on my monitor. AND, how cool is this? You can see the paintings in infrared and x-ray too!! 

Closer to Van Eyck: Rediscovering the Ghent Altarpiece is the results of a research project to assess and record the paintings condition for conservation.
