About Stamp

This nativity-themed painting, courtesy of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is the work of 16 th century artist Adriaen Isenbrandt. He was active in Bruges from 1510, when he became a master in the painters’ guild – a sign of his professional status. The oil-on-panel painting, entitled The Adoration of the Magi , depicts a traditional scene from the nativity: the moment when Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus welcome the arrival of the magi. The wise men stand in the background on the left, while other onlookers – including animals typically associated with the scene – appear throughout. Photographed by Denis Farley, this work was part of a generous donation made to the museum by Michal and Renata Hornstein. Another piece from this collection will be featured on another stamp next year.

Adriaen Isenbrandt completed the painting early in his career, possibly in the 1520s.
