Explore the paintings

    These four paintings are the wings from a triptych (a painting made up of three sections). The wings were the pieces on either side of a central panel which could be closed to protect the main image.

    The paintings of angels on the back of the wings meant that the triptych was decorated when closed as well as when open.
