Apse: 4. Adoration of the Kings

Santa Maria in Trastevere, Rome

The fourth scene of the Mary cycle, the Adoration of the Kings, is in the apse. In this scene the action is taking place in the foreground, but there is also a view on the left of a mountain in the distance crowned by the city of Jerusalem and a suggestion of the road the kings have traveled. In the inclusion of this scenery one sees the beginnings of a new sense of picture space.
