What does the curator team of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art state about this artwork created by Justus of Ghent? (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Painted in a glue-based medium on canvas, this Adoration of the Magi is by an artist active both in the Netherlands (Ghent) and in Italy (Urbino). Justus shows the youngest king as a black African to indicate that the magi came from the three corners of the world. A black African servant hands him his gift and there is another black African observer in the crowd. Such individuals were increasingly present at the courts of western Europe, but the strikingly similar appearance of these three poses the question of whether they derive from a single model or, instead, were based an idealized type.
