Three large canvases form the triptych, devoted to “The Adoration of the Magi” , one of the central themes of the Biblical cycle. The central picture depicts the Holy Family while the right and left parts show the Magi. The large figures, wide dense brushstrokes, the well-organized and clear composition, the attention to details fill the pictures with rigor, grandeur and solemnity.
The central canvas attracts viewers’ attention with the soft light emanating from the Christ Child. His glow unites and emphasizes the relationships between the figures of the composition meaning love, tenderness, care with a touch of sadness, as if anticipating the dramatic future. The figures seem to appear from the vibrating background, their shapes melting, which makes the image resemble a fairy-tale.
