Artist's Description

Christmas: From our Christian Masterpiece Collection #CM1600, Adoration of the Magi by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. Murillo’s 16th century painting shows a somewhat younger Joseph than is typical of the scene but is otherwise a standard depiction. Balthasar, the African or Moor, is shown to be black, a not so common representation of the young King but faithful to most translations of the story. Caspar, the eldest of the Three Kings, is kneeling and kissing the infant Jesus’ feet while villages and their children watch and wait their turn to adore the new born King…Although Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617-1682), a Spanish Baroque painter, is best known for his religious works, he also produced a considerable number of paintings of contemporary women and children. These lively, realist portraits of flower girls, street urchins and beggars constitute an extensive record of the everyday life of the times. His first works were influenced by Zurbarán, Jusepe de Ribera and Alonzo Cano, and he shared their strongly realist approach. As his painting developed, his more important works evolved towards the polished style that suited the bourgeois and aristocratic tastes of the time – especially in his Roman Catholic religious works. The prolific imitation of his paintings ensured his reputation in Spain and fame throughout Europe, and prior to the 19th century, his work was more widely known than that of any other Spanish artist.
