triptych (/ˈtrɪptɪk/ trip-tik; from the Greek adjective τρίπτυχον ("three-fold"), from tri, i.e., "three" and ptysso, i.e., "to fold" or ptyx, i.e., "fold") is a work of art that is divided into three sections. It is therefore a type of polyptych, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is typically the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, although there are triptychs of equal-sized panels.
 
Polyptychs can be prepared with a variety of options, specifically, a "diptych" is a two-part work of art; a "triptych" is a three-part work; a "tetraptych" or "quadriptych" has four parts; "pentaptych" five; "hexaptych" six; "heptaptych" seven; and "octaptych" eight parts.

Artworks as triptychs or other polyptychs have two key advantages.

  1. Because of their arrangement and shape they are fantastic impact pieces.
  2. A multi-panel artwork is able to be significantly larger than a single panel artwork.

Typically when preparing a fine art print our single panel maximum size is 60 x 40 inches (1524 x 1016). A polyptych, each panel can be at this size, making the overall artwork much larger.
