Cover: The Nativity (1520) by Hans Baldung-Grien (ca. 1484-1545) - Alte Pinakotek, Munich.

About the cover
This Nativity, by the German Renaissance artist Hans Baldung-Grien, is especially notable for the artist’s dramatic use of light and dark, which underscores the message of the Birth of Christ — the brilliance of the Star, which seems to pierce the inky night sky; the angel within an areola enlightening the shepherds (seen through the archway); and the light that emanates from the Christ Child — the Light of the World — illuminating all the surrounding figures and the interior of the stable.

A painter and printmaker, Hans Baldung-Grien was a contemporary of Albrecht Dürer, and joined Dürer’s workshop in Nuremburg, Germany, from 1503-1506.
