GHIRLANDAIO, Domenico
(b. 1449, Firenze, d. 1494, Firenze)

Adoration of the Magi (detail)

1488
Tempera on wood
Spedale degli Innocenti, Florence

Here Ghirlandaio displays his interest in fine head-dresses and lavish jewelry, such as were depicted in extreme detail and variety in Flemish paintings.

The three men's heads appear to be portraits, but can no longer be identified.
