UNKNOWN MASTER, German
(active 1480-1520 in Cologne)
The Adoration of the Magic. 1505
Oak, 57,2 x 50,7 cm
In contrast to most of the large-scale and ceremonious images of the Magi in Cologne this small-format picture depicts an intimate and familiar scene. Idealism is combined with realistic observation.
The artist of the panel is referred to as the Master of St Severin.
