The Moreel triptych represents the essence of Memling's art. It was painted in 1484 for Willem Moreel, a prominent Bruges politician and his wife Barbara van Vlaenderberch née van Hertsvelde. The painting was destined for the Chruch of Saint James in Bruges, where the couple wished eventually to be burried.
