Adoration of the Magi

Poplar panrl, 111 x 176 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin

This is one of the finest Venetian International Gothic altarpieces. It conveys a cosmic sense of overview by a rectangular panorama. The artist's vision is enhanced by a use of distant landscape still close to the late Gothic illuminator's art.
