  • The painting, dated around 1658, was a gift to King Philip IV from Cardinal Francesco Barberini (1597-1679), a nephew of Pope Urban VIII (r. 1623-1644). Following the death of this Pope, who was known for his anti-Spanish tendencies, and the arrival of his Hispanophile successor Innocent X, the King issued orders for the ecclesiastical income Barberini enjoyed in Spain and Italy to be confiscated. Their reconciliation came in 1659, partly as a result of the gifts the cardinal sent to Madrid. Among them was this painting, which is executed on a support made up of forty-three small pieces of aventurine and three of slate.
  • James Tissot [French Painter, 1836-1902] The Journey of the Magi 1894 While in England Tissot became a very successful and popular painter of casual society scenes such as cafes and relaxed social gatherings. His great skill was in understanding both social situations and the personal emotions that people felt. He had an incredible understanding of Victorian England and his paintings were insightful narratives that told stories about the people in them.   The great love of his life was Kathleen Newton, his mistress and one of the famous scandalous women of the day. She lived with him and her two children from a previous marriage and their life was very happy together. When she died at the age of 28 from tuberculosis Tissot was devastated by her loss. He could no longer paint as he did before and after trying to rebuild his career in France he finally left Europe to spend ten years in the Holy Land searching for the deeper meanings in life. In 1896 he published 865 New Testament illustrations, a monumental task, and was working on the Old Testament at his death in 1902.
  • Stained glass windows in the Mausoleum of the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels , Los Angeles, California; originally created in the 1920s for Saint Vibiana Cathedral, Los Angeles In the spacious Mausoleum, one of the largest cathedral burial vaults in the world, the stained glass windows soften and sanctify the rows of crypts.  The basement also holds the St. Vibiana's Chapel.
  • The Shrine of the Magi is the largest, most artistically significant, and, in terms of its content, most ambitious reliquary of the Middle Ages. The relics were brought to Cologne from Milan in 1164. From about 1190 to 1220 a number of artisans worked on the shrine in the workshop of the goldsmith Nicholas of Verdun and in workshops in Cologne and along the river Meuse that continued his work. Ornamentation on the shrine includes gold- and silver-embossed, fire-gilded figures, filigree panels set with precious and semi-precious stones, intaglios, and cameos, and columns, arches and profiles trimmed with enamels. The images depicted on the shrine include scenes from the history of salvation from the dawning of time to the Last Judgment. Although the shrine was shortened by one axis after being hidden from French revolutionary troops in 1794, it was largely restored to its original shape during the most recent period of restoration, which lasted from 1961 to 1973. The intention in the Middle Ages was that the shrine would be placed in the crossing. Today, however, it rises above the medieval high altar at the back of the inner choir, making this area the main focus of the Gothic cathedral, which was built as a stone reliquary for this precious shrine. The gilded sarcophagus kept in the cathedral in Cologne, Germany where the bones of the holy three kings are believed to be residing today. Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa brought them there from Italy back in 1161. We know that the magi were wise men from "the East," most likely Persia, or modern-day Iran. This means the wise men traveled 800 to 900 miles to see the Christ child. Most likely, the magi knew of the writings of the prophet Daniel, who in time past had been the chief of the court seers in Persia.
