Historic Centuries-Old Style Called Triptych Reborn with Prints On Canvas
Triptych is a work of art that is similar to panel paintings, three to be exact, which is why it’s divided into three sections. The three even hand crafted panels that are hinged together and can be arranged in different ways freestanding. It is therefore a type of “polyptych”, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is generally the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, however today there are many triptychs that use equal-sized panels like the ones on our website. The multi-panel form arises from early Christian art, and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. Its geographical range was from the eastern Byzantine churches to the Celtic churches in the west. Today, however, triptychs are a popular interior design go-to element to make any space look special.
