Ghent_Altarpiece_E_-_Just_Judges_by_Vanderveken.jpg

The Just Judges is a panel from the Ghent Altarpiece (ICYMI, the GA is a pretty big deal in art history…).

The polyptych (Greek for “many folds”) work is comprised of 12 panels, and was started by  Hubert van Eyck (one panel inscription, now lost, says he was maior quo nemo repertus, or “the best”), but probz finished by his brother, Jan.

Just Judges went missing in 1934, and hasn’t ever been recovered.

Womp, womp.
