The text is selected from the King James Version of the Bible (the Gospels of Luke and Matthew), and the scenes depicted by Pieńkowski span various settings, time periods, and moods, making this an imaginative and nuanced interpretation. The First Christmas
is a beautiful work of art, a reverent telling of the Nativity story, and a Christmas classic for families to cherish.
