The Adoration of the Magi (1568)


The Adoration of the Magi (1568)
El Greco 1541 – 1614
oil on panel (43 × 51 cm) — 1568
Matthew 2:11 - And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.
The king to the right appears to be stumbling. The horses' necks are not very well done.

El Greco made this painting at the beginning of his career, when he stayed in Venice.
