Botticelli's early works are recognized to be predominantly small and medium format panel paintings of the Madonna, the composition of which usually bears some relation to famous pictures by his teacher, Filippo Lippi. His earliest biblical history painting, an Adoration of the Magi, the first in a long tradition of Adoration pictures by Botticelli was painted in this period.
