Pair of 18th century religious paintings

Beautiful pair of Oils on panels representing "the flight into Egypt" and "the adoration of the Magi".
These two paintings have a beautiful pictorial quality, bright and contrasting colors. They present two religious scenes illustrating the life of Jesus.
"The Flight into Egypt": Joseph, Mary and the Child Jesus, flee the soldiers of King Herod who seeks to eliminate all young male children from his kingdom.
“The Adoration of the Magi”: the visit of the Magi during the nativity.

Oil on panels
18th century
Posterior gilt wood frames


Historical Annecdote: The depiction of "the adoration of the Magi" is a very popular theme in Christian iconography. It already appears in the Christian catacombs.
From the ninth century appear the names of Gaspard, Melchior and Balthazar in Ravennel's Liber Pontificalis.
The three kings then refer to the three parts of the world then known: Europe, Asia and Africa.
