Juan de Flandes was born in the Netherlands sometime around 1465. He lived in
Spain during the years when he was an artist. In 1498 Queen Isabella of Spain
hired him as the official artist for the court. His painting Marriage Feast at
Cana was done in oil, and was painted n 1500 on wood. It now hangs in the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In this story, Jesus and his mother,
Mary, are attending a wedding feast. The host ran out of wine and Jesus asked
that water jars be brought in and filled with water. When they began to pour
from the jars, the water had been turned into wine; the finest wine they had
served at the feast. This was the first of many miracles that Jesus performed
while he was on earth. The bride and the groom are facing us in the picture,
and Jesus and his mother are both robed in black. You can the story of the
Marriage Feast in Cana in the Bible in the gospel of John.
