"Adoration Of The Magi, Venetian School Late 17th-early 18th"
Adoration of the wizards who, guided by a star, go to Jerusalem to meet Herod, king of Judea, who will tell them Betlhlem to witness the birth of Jesus.

We find in this representation Mechior, king of Persia who brings gold (symbol of royalty, Gaspard representing Asia that brings incense (symbol of divinity) and Balthazar who brings myrrh (symbol of embalming)

Mary and Joseph are dressed simply symbolizing the heavenly and not terrestrial richness.

The columns in the background symbolize Jerusalem and not the stable where Jesus was born.

The blackness of the painting is reminiscent of the followers of Jacobo Bassano and his sons in practice in the Serenissime of the 16th and 17th century
