Adoration of the Magi

Tempera and gold on panel, 63 x 54 cm
Abegg-Stiftung, Bern

The austerity of this painting seems a reinterpretation of Gentile da Fabriano's magnificent altarpiece that focuses on the solemnity of Epiphany rather than the splendour of the Magi's entourage or the richness of their garments.
