Adoration of the Magi

Stefano da Verona

Stefano da Verona, is the quintessence of the International Gothic style – the shapes and lines are similar to those of Gentile da Fabriano – but there is a profusion of detail. In the procession of the Magi come to worship Mary we recognise the darl-skinned figures, we see camels as well as a beautiful peacock. There are even huntersin the background, a detail absent from the Biblical narrative. The painting is signed in what seem to be raised characters, next to a bunch of carnations.
