This video from the National Gallery of Art Children’s Video Tour introduces the young (and young at heart!) to the 15th-century painting “The Adoration of the Magi” by Fra Angelico and Fra Filippo Lippi. Illustrating the biblical story of the arrival of the Magi, this brilliantly colored painting depicts the Magi’s discovery of a newborn baby named Jesus, with his mother Mary and her husband Joseph. Can you find the person in the painting looking at the star? On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 4. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=41581
