The Adoration of the Magi | L'adoration des Mages

The figural composition of the Biblical theme of the adoration of the Magi is shown in the foreground.

The left part of the painting in the background shows the architecture of the wooden manger, while the right side shows the monumental architecture of a triumphal arch through which a procession of figures diminished by the perspective. Above the scene, in the center of the upper part of the painting, is a group of hovering winged angels. Inventory No: S-3
