Murillo’s 'Adoration of the Shepherds' is at once powerful and simple: shepherds adore the Christ child with prayers and gestures of awe and humility. A group of bystanders add an intimate, domestic tone to the scene, further reinforced by the remarkable still life. In style and subject matter, it epitomises Murillo’s lasting appeal: his sympathetic portrayal of humanity, his ‘warm’ (calido) colours and his delicate, expressive brushwork.
