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
