UNKNOWN MASTER, German
(active 1470-1490 in Middle-Rhine)

Adoration of the Magi

1470-90
Oil and gold on beech panel, 18 x 17 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

In this small panel there are borrowings from two famous altarpieces from Cologne, Rogier van der Weyden's Columba Altarpiece and Stefan Lochner's Dombild. Due to stylistic similarities it is assumed that the unknown painter was familiar with the work of the Master of the Housebook.
