|The tryptic in question, I love the colors.|
The painting was done in the middle ages. And the Priest and the Nun are probably representations of the family that commissioned the painting.
The center is the annunciation (where the Angel tells Mary the good news). Obviously it didn't happen in a house like this, but this is probably the "living room" of the home of the people that commissioned the painting.
The remaining third is Joseph in a middle ages Carpentry shop. Which the commissioner might have owned a few of.
NOT say "Wow that Angle probably scared the poop out of Mary as she was reading." But I did compliment the docent who told us this, without mentioning she was evesdropping.
