The painter of this work was one of the Antwerp Mannerists, a group of artists who painted biblical figures and saints as if they were contemporary citizens in costly clothing - half fantasy, half 16th-century reality - such as the three kings, seen here bearing gifts for the infant Jesus. According to legend, the stable in which he was born was built on the ruins of the palace of King David, which explains the fanciful, pseudo-classical architecture.
