Perhaps the most important painting of Rubens' career, The Adoration of the Magi was painted for the Town Hall in Antwerp in 1609. Two decades later, after it had passed to the King of Spain, the artist repainted and extended it, incorporating a self-portrait as if in dialogue with his younger self. Produced in association with the Prado in Madrid, where the painting now hangs, this lavishly illustrated book charts the fascinating history and recent restoration of a complex masterpiece.
