UNKNOWN MASTER, German
(active 1480-1520 in Cologne)

The Adoration of the Magi

c. 1505
Oak, 57,2 x 50,7 cm
Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, Cologne

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.
