Closed Today (Monday)

The Campin Room at The Cloisters, the branch of the Metropolitan Museum devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, recently reopened to the public following an extensive renovation. The gallery houses Robert Campin’s Annunciation Triptych (known as the Merode Triptych), which has been one of the masterworks at The Cloisters for nearly half a century. The new installation highlights the phenomenon of late medieval private devotion. Two new wall cases allow the exhibition of devotional objects formerly seen in the Treasury, and two important 15th-century stained-glass panels—one representing Christ as the Man of Sorrows, the other the Virgin as the Mater Dolorosa—have been installed in the central windows. Acquired in 1998, these panels are on view at The Cloisters for the first time and contribute greatly to the private devotional theme. New, more discreet lighting has been installed and the gallery walls have been re-plastered to match the original color.
