The Adoration of the Magi, or Maji, or Wise Men, or th eThree Kings (the Gospels do not say that they were kings, nor that there were three of them) is a popular subject; here two of them are prostrate on the ground, barefoot, while a third waits. Mary might havea Jewish nose, but none of the people look Palestinian to me.

Our connection with [F. R. Pickersgill]—one of the kindest and best of men—soon ripened into a close friendship, and it was to him that we gave the first commission at our own cost for a set of drawings to illustrate “The Life of Christ,” desiring to follow the example of Rethel’s “Dance of Death,” which had just been published in Germany at a very small price.” (p. 52)
