Adoration of the Magi – Southern France or Spain, 18th century

“The Adoration of the Magi”. Oil on canvas, southern France or Spain, 18th c.
Having learned of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the kings came from the East, guided by a star, to pay homage to the king of the Jews, and bring him gifts of great symbolic wealth: gold, myrrh and frankincense.
Some later Christian traditions popularize them under the names of Melchior, Gaspard and Balthazar, since the Gospel text of Matthew mentions neither their names nor their number, and does not refer to them as kings.
Good condition, unframed.
