Art on Wings
Celebrating the Reunification of a Triptych by Gerard David
Under the title ‘Art on Wings’, the Mauritshuis museum had presented an exciting show of late-medieval altarpiece panels which once formed part of a larger work of art. Also included among the exhibits are several complete triptychs. The spacious design of the exhibition allows the viewer to see these panels from all sides. Highlight of the show is the temporary reconstruction of a triptych by the Bruges painter Gerard David (c. 1450-1523) of which the outer panels are at the Mauritshuis and the inner panels at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
