The Adoration of the Magi, Jan Jansz Mostaert, c. 1520 - c. 1525

oil on panel, h 51cm × w 36.5cm. More details

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.
