ArtNews have published an article on the news that researchers from Antwerp and Washington have come out in support of the restoration of Van Eyck's Ghent Altarpiece. Experts from the University of Antwerp and the National Gallery of Art in Washington have asserted that the restored image of the Mystic Lamb is consistent with its original 15th century depiction. The restoration shocked several figures in the art world when it was unveiled last year (pictured).

This article by Ars Technica provides lots of interesting images of the conservation work conducted on the picture, including infrared scans etc.
