This major period of figurative art, characterized by the detailed representation of religious images and symbols is made famous by its masters. Our painting executed in the seventeenth century is a good example, It represents the adoration of the three wise men who bring the three gifts (gold, frankincense and myrrh) to the child Jesus. In the iconographic tradition Gaspard, with Asian features, offers incense, Melchior, represented as a white bearded old man, gold, and Balthazar, with black skin, myrrh.

In 1700, he returned to Venice where he opened a workshop. He painted frescoes for the Villa Rinaldi Barbini (1705-1707), as well as for the Basilica di San Lorenzo in Verolanuova, and in 1708 he was enrolled in the Fraglia (guild) of Venetian painters.
