Jan van Eyck and the Northern Renaissance in Bruges: New Interdisciplinary Research

Fifteenth-century Netherlandish painting, and Bruges as one of its main centres, have long been classic research topics in art history. This is epitomized by the study of Jan van Eyck and his oeuvre, which has resulted in an extensive body of work by important (art) historians. In the last few years social historians have started new investigations of the archival sources while archaeologists have also increasingly begun to look into the relationship between painting and material culture in this period. The aim of this workshop is to present stimulating new and ongoing research on Jan van Eyck and Northern Renaissance Bruges within the context of the wider Burgundian Low Countries, in an interdisciplinary conversation between leading scholars in the fields of art history, socio-economic and political history and archaeology.

The conference is organised by the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies Ghent University & BRON Research Centre Musea Brugge
