At a Glance

The well-known story of the birth and infancy of Jesus, from the Annunciation to the episode of Jesus amongst the Elders, served as inspiration for generations of western artists throughout the centuries, from the Flemish masters and Italian Renaissance painters to Spanish Baroque artists. This talk will give us the opportunity to admire some beautiful artwork by Bosch, Fra Angelico, Raphael, El Greco, Rubens and Velázquez from the major museums in Madrid as we discover some interesting aspects. Do Luke and Matthew recreate the same events? Why is baby Jesus dressed in a long gown in Medieval images, while he is naked in Renaissance art? How many Magi were there? Can we recognize angels by their color? Was Herod really as cruel as he was supposed to be?
