This painting is part of the group: The Liesborn Altarpiece

Explore the paintings

This fragment shows two kneeling kings, one of whom offers the golden cup, paying homage to the Christ Child who rests on his mother's lap. The scene appears to be set in a ruined stable before a landscape; the wall and a path can be seen at the left.

This is one of three surviving fragments of the original 'Adoration', one of the panels of the Liesborn Altarpiece, see 'The Annunciation'by the same artist for details. The other two fragments, showing a third king before a landscape and another male figure (Joseph?), are in the Westfälisches Landesmuseum, Münster.
