Adoration of the Magi

Gaudenzio Ferrari

The Adoration proper, accompanied by images of the procession of kings and pages, knights, dwarves and exotic animals, merges a taste for dazzling narrative with details of moving realism, for example the ageing king bowing in reverence to the Christ Child as he imparts a priestly blessing. Gaudenzio’s scenes with their human richness and variety of figures were to serve as models for successive generations of painters.
