The Adoration of the Magi

Detached fresco transferred to canvas, 190 x 135 cm
Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan

The Brera has several detached frescoes from the chapel of the Natività della Vergine in the Franciscan church of Santa Maria della Pace in Milan. The frescoes depict scenes related to the birth and juvenile years of the Virgin, a subject on which the interest of the Franciscan Order, who played an important role in Lombardy, was focused.
