About the book
The timeless story of Christmas is beautifully retold through paintings by some of the world’s greatest artists. Borrowing from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s extensive and rich collection, The Christmas Story depicts the Nativity through visual narration with the aid of paintings by, among others, Petrus Christus, Gerard David, and Hans Memling. Gold accents on the book jacket and interior pages make for a glorious and lush book.
 
The artworks, sensitively coupled with excerpts from the King James Version of the Bible, create a book that will be treasured by the entire family for years to come.
