The Adoration of the Magi

Pieter ll. Brueghel

Pieter ll. Brueghel - The Adoration of the Magi
Pieter II Brueghel painted The Adoration of the Magi after a preserved painting by his father (now Winterthur, Oskar Reinhart collection). Collections worldwide now hold over thirty paintings based on this model. The Prague version holds a unique place among them: like in his father´s original, this one features snowflakes (which in the other copies, one excepted, are missing). The coloration and miniature manner of painting come closest to the Winterthur work.
