The Nativity (c. 1480)

The Nativity (c. 1480)
Martin Schongauer ca. 1447 – 1491
oil on panel (37 × 28 cm) — c. 1480
Luke 2:16 - And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
Joseph, Mary, the ass, the ox and the shepherds all admire the new-born child lying on a bundle of straw covered by a blanket.

The style of this work shows resemblance to that of the Southern Netherlandish master Rogier van der Weyden, whose work Schongauer is believed to have closely studied.
