  • The Wilton Diptych is a work that combines a sense of peace, majesty, awesome power, purity, poignancy, and elegance. It is unmatched in the world. At first glance the faces of the angels all look the same but each possesses its own distinct character. The panel is only 19x12 inches in size. There is no idea who the artist was or even his nationality. Art historians have debated his identity and most agree that he was English but there is still no clear-cut proof. The Wilson Diptych is a small folding altarpiece, which is presumed to have been commissioned by King Richard II of England for his private devotions. The king is portrayed kneeling in prayer and being presented by three Saints to the Virgin and Child. Although the identity of the artist is unknown, the use of egg tempera is associated with Italy and the style of the work is informed by Sienese art. On the other hand, the oak panel support and the type of white chalk ground refer to Northern European painting. The artist of the Wilson Diptych uses egg tempera paint that dries immediately. Therefore, different paints must be pre-mixed before painting, rather than mixing paint on the surface to be painted. Adding wet paint to dry dissolves and smudges the dry paint. Thus, egg tempera paint is applied in thin strokes. The Virgin’s face is a good example of this method. Thick, heavy strokes are not possible because they crack as they lose water.
