The Just Judges or The Righteous Judges is a Belgian jacquard wall tapestry portraying the lower left panel of the Ghent Altarpiece, also called Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, painted by Jan and Hubert van Eyck circa 1432. It is believed that the panel shows portraits of several contemporary figures such as Philip the Good, and possibly the artists Hubert and Jan van Eyck themselves. The panel was stolen in 1934 and has never been found. At that time the altarpiece represented a new conception of art, in which the idealization of the medieval tradition gave way to an exacting observation of nature and unidealised human representation.
