Adoration of the Magi

around 1555–60, Artist: Jacopo da Ponte, gen. Jacopo Bassano



Adoration of the Magi

With his rural scenes and their convincing realism, Jacopo Bassano brought a new accent to Venetian painting. At the same time, in his finest works including this one, he proved himself to be a leading exponent of Mannerism at the height of that period. With extremely bold contrasts of colour and refined design, he unexpectedly paints realistic details and abstract motifs right next to one another.

Location: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, Kabinett 7
