The story of the very first Christmas is captured here in all its mystery by some of the world's greatest painters, including Botticelli, Giorgione, Geertgen, Gossaert, Foppa, Patel, and Guido Reni. The beauty of the familiar words of the King James Version of the Bible weaves the glorious images together to create a new work of art: a Christmas story that will be treasured by readers young and old. This is the perfect Christmas gift for art lovers and a fantastic and accessible introduction to both the nativity story and these seminal works of art for young readers. The paintings are kept in the National Gallery in London, which houses the national collection of Western European painting from the 13th to the 19th centuries.
