The Adoration of the Magi by Andrea Mantegna 1495 - 1505...

Description of Original
Distemper on linen
19 1/8 x 25 13/16 in.

Three kings pay homage to the Christ Child, who in turn makes a sign of blessing. Jesus Christ, his mother the Virgin Mary, and Mary's husband Joseph have halos and wear simple garments, while the Magi are dressed in exotic clothing and jewels and bear exquisite gifts.

Caspar, bearded and bareheaded, presents the Christ Child with a rare Chinese cup, made of delicate porcelain and filled with gold coins. Melchior, the younger, bearded king behind Caspar, holds a Turkish censer for perfuming the air with incense; on the right, Balthasar the Moor carries a covered cup made of agate.

Andrea Mantegna's composition of figures and objects compressed within a shallow space was based on his study of ancient Roman reliefs. He used a neutral background and sharply defined details to focus the viewer's attention on the kings' adoration of Christ.

This is a new 20X30 Art Print Poster. Art print posters are printed on a special archival, heavier paper which provides more texture, a much longer life and a richer finish. Just Beautiful! You'll be very pleased.

Says one customer - "Comments .... The quality of the product I received was phenomenal and unexpected. For the price I paid, I expected a store-bought poster-quality print and received the equivalent of a 20" x 30" photograph. It ended up
making me feel bad about the relatively low-quality frame I had purchased for the print. Mike from IA"
