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, and Hans Memling. Gold accents on the book
jacket and interior pages make for a glorious and lush book.
The artworks, sensitively coupled with excerpts from the King James
Version of the Bible, create a book that will be treasured by the
entire family for years to come.
