Robert Campin
The Mérode Altarpiece



Annunciation or Nativity?

Traditionally labelled an annunciation altarpiece, the St. Joseph panel is unusual, but more challenging is the difference in weather in the two outer panels. While the left panel depicts a spring setting, the left panel shows snow through the open window. If both are true, perhaps the altarpiece reflects the months from March through December, and is really a nativity.
