UNKNOWN MASTER, Austrian
(active 1450s in Salzburg)

Adoration of the Magi

1450s
Tempera and gold on wood, 92 x 92 cm
Christian Museum, Esztergom

This panel comprised part of the movable wing of a large-scale winged altarpiece. The inner side of the wing displayed the Adoration of the Magi, while the outer showed two apostles.

The style of the images on both sides of the panel clearly reflect the influence of Salzburg painting in the second quarter of the 15th century. The square format of the panel was very widespread in Austrian painting of the time.
