Synopsis

The Christmas Story by Metropolitan Museum of Art

This is the only picture book about the Nativity illustrated with works of art by the greatest masters. The timeless story of Christmas is beautifully retold through paintings by some of the world's greatest artists. Borrowing from The Metropolitan Museum of Art's extensive and rich collection, The Christmas Story depicts the Nativity through visual narration with the aid of paintings by, among others, Petrus Christus, Gerard David, Hans Memling and Rogier van der Weyden. Fifth-colour gold accents on the book jacket and interior pages help to create a glorious and lush book. The artworks are sensitively coupled with excerpts from the King James version of the Bible.
