Advent Calendar 2017: Day 11

Good morning! Over the centuries, there have been some incredible artists depicting the story of Christmas with nothing else to go on than Bible depictions and their imaginations. Amazing!

Rubens\’ Adoration of the Magi is one painting that I never get tired of viewing. There is so much to see in this painting. The rich details are like a feast for the eyes and all the characters in the work are angled to draw attention to the Christ Child. (Something that took me several years to notice.) It\’s truly a carefully crafted, gorgeous piece of work. Do you have a favorite Christmas painting? 

Have a wonderful day, everyone!
