A beautiful rendition of the Epiphany when the Three Kings offered their gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.
Carlo Dolci was the most important Florentine painter of the 17th century. He was the son of a tailor and entered the studio of Jacopo Vignali in about 1625, and his prodigious output secured him a high reputation from an early age. He often repeated compositions as there was such a high demand for his work. There are even several versions of this "Adoration of the Kings" His highly refined style differs greatly from that of other contemporary Italian painters, and may show even a hint of the influence of Dutch Masters.
