About the Image:

In the sixteenth century Antwerp, a major trade metropolis, became one of north-western Europe’s leading art centres. Among its many painters’ workshops were a number of studios that worked closely with one another. For want of a better name, the respective artists are collectively known as the ‘Antwerp Mannerists’. One of their main representatives, the ‘Master of the von Groote Adoration’, was named after this work. Here, he depicted the ‘Adoration of the Magi’ in a wealth of detail, accompanying it with two Old Testament scenes that serve as a commentary. source
