The Quarto del Priore is the apartment belonging to the spiritual guide of the Carthusian community; it also included reception rooms, where distinguished guests were received. The various rooms were hung with paintings from the Charterhouse’s famed collection. The paintings in the monastery’s ‘Picture Gallery’ were confiscated by the French in 1806 and in subsequent years the assets were dispersed. The former collections are testified to by paintings such as the Madonna and Child, Crucifixion and Saints by Jean Bourdichon, and the doors of the triptych by an unknown Spanish- Flemish painter, dating back to the last quarter of the fifteenth century, with portraits of King Robert of Anjou and his son Charles of Calabria in the guise of the Magi. The space that was once an open courtyard is now used to exhibit one of the masterpieces of early seventeenth-century statuary: the Virgin and Child and the Infant Saint John by Pietro Bernini.
