After eight years of intense restoration, the altarpiece of The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, painted by Jan and Hubert Van Eyck in 1432, will finally regain its original splendor.
An essential pillar of the history of art through its disproportionate artistic project and its revolutionary realism, this work unfolds far beyond what it shows us. Because behind its sacred tale, the altarpiece bears witness to a captivating artistic adventure and the birth of our modernity.
Thanks to a spectacular staging of this painting and sometimes surprising encounters, the film will offer an intimate dive into the very heart of the act of creation. Along the way, we will try to give new life to the souls and gestures behind this aesthetic upheaval that was the masterpiece of the Van Eyck brothers.
