Ghent Altarpiece Online

View one of the world's great artworks in sharp detail at the website, Closer to Van Eyck: Rediscovering the Ghent Altarpiece (http://closertovaneyck.kikirpa.be/). Select a section of the Altarpiece, and zoom in for extreme closeups.

Images can be viewed in four different ways--through macrophotography, infrared macrophotograpny, infrared reflectology, and x-radiography.

For information about the project that brought the artwork to the web, see the article, "The Ghent Altarpiece in 100 Billion Pixels" as well as information provided by the site itself.
