Hans Memling

Morgan Library & Museum


Portraiture, Piety, and a Reunited Altarpiece

Completed around 1470 in Bruges, Hans Memling’s Triptych of Jan Crabbe was dismembered in the 18th century and has never before been reconstructed for an American audience. Two panels from the altarpiece are among the finest paintings owned by the Morgan Library & Museum, where they have long been on permanent view in Pierpont Morgan’s Study. This exhibition brings together the scattered elements of the famous triptych, reuniting the Morgan inner wings with the central panel now owned by the Musei Civici in Vicenza, Italy, and the outer wings from the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, Belgium.
