Two panels from Hans Memling’s Jan Crabbe 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 (pictured here). “Hans Memling: Portraiture, Piety, and a Reunited Altarpiece” 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.
