van Eyck

The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, painted by Hubert and Jan van Eyck in the 1430s, has been called the most influential painting in history. It's also been called the most sought after painting since it has been stolen 7 or 8 times.   It's here in Ghent in St. Bavo's cathedral.  We went to see it on Wednesday.  The detail in it is amazing.
