For Christmas, in 2017

December 25, 2017 at 3:05 pm (Christmas 2017)

Sending some beautiful things your way, on this Christmas Day:

Maesta, by Duccio


Nativity, by Rogier van der Weyden


Adoration of the Kings, by the Master of Perea


Nativity, by Conrad von Soest


procession of the Magi, by Gozzoli


Adoration of the Magi, by Botticelli



Adoration of the Shepherds, by Murillo


Journey of the Magi, by Sassetta

This is a painting I have loved since I first saw it in the Metropolitan Museum of Art when I was a child. It makes me think of Chaucer’s Canterbury pilgrims.


Portinari Altarpiece, by Hugo van der Goes


The Nativity at Night, by Geertgen tot Sint Jans
