Christ calls St Matthew to leave his tax-collecting and follow him. Matthew’s eagerness to leave his business is in contrast to the chained monkey which prefers coins to good food. On the right Christ feasts in the house of Matthew. A triptych formerly in Dilighem Abbey was painted by the same artist who is now thought to be Jan Mertens the Younger.
