Description

This 15C church has Baroque furnishings and especially a 1619 Rubens triptych, The Adoration of the Magi. In the central panel, note the contrast between the gentle profile of the Virgin (inspired by the face of Rubens' first wife, Isabelle Brant) and the Magi's rugged faces as they gaze at the fair-haired Infant.
