Die Anbetung der Hirten

More about this artwork
Christ, born in a lowly stable, is venerated by simple shepherds who draw close to the child with a mixture of curiosity and reverence. With his skilful treatment of light, Rembrandt underlines how light was brought into the darkest corner of the stable and into the world through Christ.
