Original information about the work of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

El Greco’s late work is characterized by a tendency towards abstraction and almost dance-like, restless movement. Here, the gestures of the shepherds indicate their excitement and wonder at the birth of Jesus. El Greco often made replicas or variants of important compositions and this picture—of very high quality—repeats features of a painting done for Juan de Ribera, patriarch of Antioch and archbishop of Valencia.
