Pinacoteca di Brera Informazioni

Adoration of the Magi

Ludovico Carracci

Signed and dated in the bottom right-hand corner: «Lod. Car. Bon. A.D. MDCXVI», the picture came to the Brera with the Napoleonic suppressions. Its date is confirmed in a letter dated 29 June 1616 in which Ludovico says that he is working on the painting. One of the loftiest expressions of the artist’s maturity, it is still faithful to his style designed to communicate popular religious sentiment in a way that was easy to understand, while also allowing for the fact that it was intended for a penitential confraternity.
