Icing on the cake:
Order a Van Eyck beer (33 cl) on board your private boat.
This amber coloured triple was brewed with the numerous herbs and flowers Jan Van Eyck
painted in his masterwork “The adoration of the Mystic Lamb”.
The label is an image of the painting: “Portrait of a man in a red turban”. This is presumably
the only self-portrait of Jan Van Eyck.
This painting however is not on display in the exhibition because it never leaves The National Gallery of London.
