Some of the most resplendent art ever produced by European civilization emerged in the 15th century in a format known as the 'polyptych', a grandly scaled, multi-part devotional painting that often can be closed upon itself, thanks to its hinged and movable wings, which are almost invariably painted of both surface, exterior as well as interior. With more than 400 illustrations in full color.
