Description This triptych was almost certainly commissioned as a family memorial by Joost Hendricksz. Van der Stijpen van Duivelandt for the Nieuwe Kerk at Delft about 1550. The donor family is depicted on the wings of the triptych. The left side shows the male family members: Henrick Joeszoen van der Stypen van Duyvelandt and his four sons. The right side shows his wife Marritgen, daughter of Dammas Simonszoen, her four daughters and a daughter who died in infancy. They have been identified from inscriptions on the back of the wings and from the arms on the signet ring worn by one of the male members of the family.
