The Nativity, the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, has been a principal subject in Western art since the 4th century. Images depicting the Nativity are based on narratives from the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke and include the Annunciation, the Adoration of the Shepherds, the Adoration of the Magi and the Flight into Egypt.
These subjects are represented in The Nativity, an exhibition of 16th through 18th century prints by artists including Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, Annibale Carracci, Adriaen Collaert, Christoffel Van Sichem II and others, whose scenes capture the humanity of the event.
