Christmastide Painting

Peter Paul Rubens, Melchior,the Assyrian King

On the lower level of the National Gallery of Art. In a little, out-of-the-way room (rm. G13A). Practically need a star to lead you to it.

Pretty soon: 20 C + M + B 13! The Mayans equivocaron, and time marches on.

All glory to the Babe of Bethlehem.

One thought on “Christmastide Painting

  1. Father Mark,

    Okay, no gloating over the Mayans’ equivocaron. It’s been a few millenia; and the touristic boost to the Mexican economy has to do somebody some good.

    But, why 20 C + M + B 13.

    Why not C + 6 M + B 13?

    In God we trust.
