Adoration of the Magi

Adoration of the Magi - Museum Religious Art Classics

Artwork Narrative:

Artist: Jan Jansz Mostaert – c. 1520 – 1525

This painting ‘zooms in’ on the adoration of the magi to such an extent that, as a spectator, you feel almost present at the birth. The kings bring gifts for baby Jesus, who is not in a lowly stable, but in the ruins of a palace - that of King David, where, according to legend, Jesus was born many centuries later.
