  • Painting Description

    The Retable of Le Cellier, a triptych created by the Northern Renaissance painter Jean Bellegambe the Elder between 1508 and 1509, is a significant work of religious art from this period. The inner-left panel of the triptych is a captivating depiction of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, the revered abbot and primary builder of the reforming Cistercian monastic order. In this panel, St. Bernard is typically shown in a pastoral landscape or within the context of a monastic setting, surrounded by Cistercian monks who are identifiable by their distinctive white habits with black scapulars.

    Bellegambe, known for his detailed and colorful altarpieces, was a leading figure in the school of painting in the County of Hainaut, which is part of present-day Belgium. His work is characterized by its intricate iconography and the use of vivid colors, which were often highlighted by the application of gold leaf, a common practice that added a divine glow to the figures and scenes depicted.

    The Retable of Le Cellier is notable for its devotional imagery and the way it reflects the religious fervor and monastic ideals of the time. The inclusion of St. Bernard and the Cistercian monks in the inner-left panel emphasizes the importance of monastic life and the spiritual guidance provided by the saint, who was known for his eloquence, writings, and contributions to the theology of the Virgin Mary.

    The triptych would have served as an altarpiece, a focal point for worship and meditation within a church or chapel. The central panel and the right panel of the triptych complement the narrative and iconography of the left panel, together creating a cohesive visual story that would have been used to educate and inspire the faithful.

    Today, the Retable of Le Cellier is recognized for its artistic and historical significance, offering insight into the religious practices and artistic traditions of the early 16th century. The work is also an important example of Jean Bellegambe's oeuvre, showcasing his skill in composition, his attention to detail, and his ability to convey complex theological concepts through visual art.
