Оверньский триптих {5513}
Latour d'Auvergne Triptych
Gift of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
Donor's names Jean and Jeanne are the French equivalents of John and therefore link them with their patron saints.

The desire expressed on the scroll for a child was fulfilled. Their daughter married a member of the illustrious Medici family of Florence. Her own daughter successfully returned to France as the wife of the future King Henri II. Known as Queen Catherine de Medici, she played a dominant role in the French politics and culture of her time.

Despite Flemish and Italian influences, the style of the painting seems to indicate that the work is a rare example of French provincial painting of the late fifteenth century, probably painted locally for the owners. An eighteenth-century inscription painted in gold on the backs of the shutters and another one written on paper and attached to the back of the central panel contribute to an unusually complete history of its ownership. After the Count's death the Countess kept the painting in her castle in Vic-le-Comte. She later bequeathed it to the Franciscan monks of that town, who retained possession of it until 1703 when it was returned to the Latour d'Auvergne family.

After a long period of existence in its region of origin, the whereabouts of the painting in more recent years are obscure except for a sale in the 1870s.
In 1957 the Samuel H. Kress Foundation acquired the work and subsequently donated it to the Museum.
