The room features the famed Early Netherlandish masterpiece the Annunciation Triptych, also known as the Merode Altarpiece, after its previous owner. The wings—including the donor and his wife and Joseph in his workshop—surround the central panel of the Annunciation.
Reflecting the function of this altarpiece, many of the other works of art in the room were intended as aids to private devotion, including a miniature carved and painted altarpiece and a mother-of-pearl triptych. The decorative feature is a fifteenth-century Spanish painted ceiling.
