Adoration of the Magi images

Goodness! I barely had my bee keeper’s veil zipped on but I completely forget my art historian headdress.

Did you know that for $298.71, a very specific price I note, you can have a hand colored reproduction of Hans Memlings’ Adoration? A web search for images reminds me that the iconography of the Magi begins in earnest in the 15th century in the North and is everywhere in Europe from the Renaissance until the 18th century.

Here are a few images captured from the web. Botticelli, Perugino, Gentile da Fabriano, Corregio, and Murrilo are a few other artists that painted the Magi and whose paintings are reproduced on the web.
