Seghers's later compositions, that more than ever consisted of altarpieces and other devotional scenes, go back not only stylistically but also in composition to the example of Rubens, so that he was able to adapt some of Rubens's most impressive altarpieces of around 1625. For the present version of the Adoration of the Magi, Rubens painting of 1624 was the model for Seghers.

This panel was painted for Epiphany Chapel in the Bruges St.-Donaas cathedral.
