Adoration of the Magi

XVI century. Wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper.
Not on display

This is a good drawing and is evidently by one of the master´s more talented followers. The suggestion of light and shade is successfully achieved and the rapid handing of the pen and wash is pleasing. Cambiaso treated the nocturnal subject of the Adoration of the Magi on a number of occasions in both paintings and drawings. This drawing shows knowledge of some of these compositions.
