Additional remarks (original location)
Additional remarks The triptych was originally located in an unknown institution in 's-Hertogenbosch, the home town of the portrayed persons. It was possibly the Dominican church where the first wife and father-in-law of Peter van Os were buried, and where he himself would be buried along with his second wife many years later. This church also happens to have been dedicated to St Peter, who is present on this triptych. All the other depicted saints were also chosen for their association with an institution (church or monastery) that was important to one of more of the portrayed individuals. Annual masses continued to be celebrated for Peter van Os at the Dominican church until well into the sixteenth century.

Commemorated institution(s)
Relation between commemorated persons extended family
Relation specification Three generations of a family: man and woman with prematurely deceased child (Van Os-Van Langel couple, interior wings) & the same woman with her parents and siblings (Van Langel family, exterior wings); the woman, Henricxken van Langel, is depicted both as wife and as daughter. Additionally, Franco van Langel was once the employer of Peter van Os, who would later also succeed him as a notary public. They were both members of the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap (Illustrious Confraternity of Our Lady) in 's-Hertogenbosch as well.
Additional remarks Arguments for identification of commemorated party: heraldic shields on the triptych; genealogical research (in literature)
Name Peter van Os and his brother-in-law Jan van Langel
Composition of the commissioning party
  • members of a cooperation/confraternity
  • members of a family
Specification The commissioners were members of an extended family. One of them, Peter van Os was also a member of the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap (Illustrious Confraternity of Our Lady) in 's-Hertogenbosch, a fact that was evidently important to him because he chose to let it affect the clothes of his portrait.
Members of the commissioning party
Commissioning person(s)
  • [1864] Peter van Os (male)
  • [1861] Jan van Langel (male)
Commissioning Institution(s)
Relation between commissioning party and commemorated party The commissioning party was the commemorated party
Relation specification Peter van Os and Jan van Langel are both commemorated on this memorial piece
Additional remarks Peter van Os commissioned the original memorial painting (central panel and interior wings). The exterior wings were very likely commissioned by Jan van Langel and possibly his sister Lysbeth, also commemorated persons.

Alterations
Alterations
  • one or more effigies/portraits added
Specification The exteriors of the wings were initially left unpainted. In ca. 1503 the portraits of the Van Langel family were added to it, presumably a commission by Jan van Langel, at the occasion of his profession as a monk at the Cistercian monastery of Mariëndonk in Heusden on 24 June 1503. It would have been a perfect moment to commemorate his deceased parents and siblings. Technical research has revealed small but noteworthy alterations made to the hands of his portrait, as well as to the face of his sister Lysbeth's portrait. The adjustments suggest Jan's and maybe also Lysbeth's direct involvement with the commission.

Additional remarks It appears the central panel was completed first, possibly as an autonomous painting without wings. Perhaps it was commissioned by Peter van Os and his first wife after their marriage in 1498-1499.

Specification it is pinned to his tabard, and belongs to the Brotherhood of Our Lady. The insignia is a silver lily with a banderole containing the word 'sicut', a reference to the brotherhood's motto 'sicut lilium inter spinas' (like a lily among thorns).
Remarks about clothing members of the Brotherhood of Our Lady had to wear its silver insignia on a coloured chaperon during their meetings and ceremonies. The colour of the chaperon varied from year to year, but details are lacking for the late fifteenth century. From account books it is known that from 1526/1527 onwards the colour was determined by a four-yearly cycle, of red-purple-blue-green. It is likely this was also the case for previous years. The new colour for the year probably had to be worn from the Easter celebrations onwards. As Franco van Langel is shown here with a green chaperon, it may be assumed that the colour for the year 1497, the year of his death, was green. See literature: Ilsink (2016).
Additional remarks The badge on the man’s clothes is that of the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap (Illustrious Confraternity of Our Lady). See Koldeweij (1990).

Assuming the same four-yearly cycle was also in place in the late fifteenth century, blue would have been worn in 1500/1501, the presumed year of the commissioning of this triptych. See literature: Ilsink (2016).

Sex male
Year/date of birth <1467
Year/date of death 1542
Additional remarks He originated from Oss. Husband of Henricxken van Langel (married in 1498-99; d. 1500) and later Henricxken Jacobs van der Heze (married after 20 August 1503). He was not only the son-in-law of Franco van Langel, but also his clerk from 1483. He became deputy general in July 1497, the year of Franco's death, and in 1498 succeeded him as municipal secretary. Peter was also a member of the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap (Illustrious Confraternity of Our Lady) in 's-Hertogenbosch around 1466. Surprisingly he wasn't granted official citizenship of 's-Hertogenbosch until 1499, no doubt a requirement if he was to succeed Franco van Langel as a notary public.
