GHENT ALTARPIECE

Art historians generally agree that the overall structure of the Ghent Altarpiece was designed by Hubert in the early to mid 1420s, and that the panels were painted by his younger brother Jan between 1430 and 1432.
The altarpiece has been moved several times over the centuries. Art historian Noah Charney describes the altarpiece as one of the more coveted and desired pieces of art, the victim of 13 crimes since its installation, and seven thefts.

But experts have found enough clues to suggest the artist worked on both.
