Triptychs

Oil Painting, 1333
Italian
Unknown Artist


Triptychs have a long history, some of the first triptychs were Altar pieces made for churches and therefore illustate religious stories and events.

Now the triptych has evovled and is sometimes made up of a continuous image across three panels. Sometimes it is a series of three related images meant to hang on separate panels close together.
