The Adoration of the Magi or The Epiphany is a triptych oil painting on wood panel by the Netherlandish artist Hieronymus Bosch, executed around 1485-1500. It is housed in the Museo del Prado of Madrid, Spain.
In about 1494, Peeter Scheyfve and Agnes de Gramme commissioned this altarpiece. They are wealthy burghers in Antwerp.The painting was in the El Escorial monastery, and was mentioned in 1605 as an "Epiphany without any extravaganza" by Fra Jose de Siguenza, differently than other Bosch's work there. It has been at the Prado since 1839.
The latest dendrochronological investigation has determined that the panels were produced after 1472 and most probably after 1474.
