Diptychs
Traditionally, a diptych is a pair of paintings or carvings on two panels, and usually hinged like a book. Diptychs are known from the Roman period.

Modern artists today use the term to mean two pictures not connected to each other but designed to hang together as a pair. These could be individually framed pieces hung close together on a wall, or two pieces placed in a two-panel mat in the one frame.

Triptychs
Traditionally, a triptych comprises a painting in three sections, or three carved panels, joined with hinges and which can be folded shut or displayed open. Triptychs made popular altarpieces from the Middle Ages on.
