Vicente Macip (Albaida, ca.1470 – Valencia, 1551) "The Adoration of the Shepherds," oil on panel 72 x 55 cm.; 28 5/8 55 5/8 in. £95,000
Vicente Macip was one of the most significant and long-lived artists in Valencia in the first half of the sixteenth century and together with his son Vicente Joan influenced the art of that city and Spain itself for many years afterwards. In this painting Maçip has depicted the Nativity not in the usual stable of Biblical tradition but in a classicising architectural setting beneath slender marble columns and an elegant stone vault. Maçip painted the subject of the Adoration of the Shepherds on several occasions. For all enquiries, please contact: Jamesv.macdonald@sothebys.com [More]
