Support the exhibition

Become a patron of the exhibition

‘Van Eyck’ brings more than 100 masterpieces of art from the Middle Ages to Ghent. An amount is attached to each of these (inter)national loans for transport, insurance and safety. Various masterpieces were restored especially for the exhibition in order to be able to be shown to the public in 2020 for the first time. Moreover, the MSK is also developing an extensive, custom-tailored offering for families, schools and visitors with special needs. As such, we are providing everyone the opportunity to come closer to Van Eyck than ever before.
