true to size replica of 'The Last Judgment' by Lucas van Leyden

On 20 May 2011 a true to size replica of 'The Last Judgment' by Lucas van Leyden will be unveiled on the location where the original triptych was displayed in the 16th century: the Church of Peter (Pieterskerk) in Leiden.

During the iconoclasm of 1566 this renaissance piece by Van Leyden was seized by the city government and rescued. From 1872 the triptych has been on display in Museum De Lakenhal.

This replica will be on permanent display at the Church of Peter from 20 May 2011.
The newly restored Church of Peter in Leiden is an awe inspiring building with a rich and fascinating history. Click here for more information and the opening hours of the Church of Peter (Pieterskerk).
