For the first time in twenty-four years and only the second time in their history, two masterpieces of early Netherlandish painting commissioned by the Carthusian monk Jan Vos are reunited. These works, The Frick Collection’s ‘Virgin and Child with St. Barbara, St. Elizabeth, and Jan Vos’, commissioned from Jan van Eyck and ‘The Virgin and Child with St. Barbara and Jan Vos’, painted by Petrus Christus, are shown with a selection of objects that place them in the rich monastic context for which they were created.
