The Adoration of the Shepherds, Paulus Willemsz. van Vianen, 1607

silver (metal), h 31.9cm × w 22.7cm × d 3.0cm × w 817gr More details

The silversmith here masterfully manipulated the contrast between high and low relief. The shepherd kneeling at left and the man standing at right are almost three-dimensional. The shepherds gathered around the Christ Child are dressed as Bohemian peasants, like those Van Vianen would have seen in Prague.

On display in room 2.3
