Master of "Adoration of the Magi" Khanenko

Netherlands • born in XV century
Master of the Khanenko Adoration, or even shorter, the Master of the Adoration of the Magi, Khanenko Master, is a substitute for a mysterious, nameless, but certainly talented artist who worked in the Netherlands in the last quarter of the 15th century, in the Sotheby's auction catalog, on plates in a museum (for example, in Budapest and in French Saint-Omer), on the site of the Metropolitan Museum (see section References). "Khanenko? Ukrainian, or what?" - the viewers are perplexed, seeing the work of a contemporary and, probably, a follower Memling.

No, not Ukrainian. But from Ukraine. The fact is that art critics, in order to somehow designate an artist, whose name is not known, but whose handwriting is so obvious that he attributed a number of works, called the nameless author in honor of the best of his works, which is, by all accounts, tiny but masterly diptych "Adoration of the Magi" (even the blue of a freshly shaven male face is transferred!), stored in Kiev, in Museum of Arts named after Bogdan and Varvara Khanenko.
