Christmas Story Synopsis

The majestic story of Christmas, from the Annunciation to the Epiphany, has long inspired great artists. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection is particularly rich in medieval and Renaissance paintings that depict this timeless story.

Gathered here are paintings by Rogier van der Weyden, Petrus Christus, Hans Memling, and Gerard David, among others, sensitively coupled with excerpts from the King James Bible. The perfect book for the entire family, The Christmas Story is a treasure to be enjoyed year after year.

A beautiful, sophisticated merging of art and text that could be used in church programs on Christmas Eve or as an introduction to medieval and Renaissance painting for older students. -- Kirkus
