The triptych as an altarpiece or devotional image played a pivotal role in Western art since the Middle Ages. This religiously motivated artistic tradition came to a halt with Rubens and was first readopted at the close of the nineteenth century, producing radically new images and focusing on novel, drastic subject matter.

Taking up the Christian motif of suffering, many significant artists in modern times make existential statements on humanity. Otto Dix, Max Beckmann, or Markus Lüpertz conceives modern myths and expresses political viewpoints. Others, such as Jannis Kounellis, Dieter Roth, or Ellsworth Kelly, ennoble materials, color and form by means of the triptych.

The publication exemplarily shows the transformation of this type of image, its impact and current relevance, and investigates also the demarcation between it and the image series or sequence.
