Commissioned by merchant broker of the Money Changing Guild, Guasparre di Zanobi del Lama for his chapel in Santa Maria Novella in Florence, this small panel depicts Cosimo the Elder and his sons Giovanni and Piero as the Magi, with Lorenzo il Magnifico and his brother Giuliano looking on. Facing the observer, we recognize the artist in a yellow cloak and the patron in a blue robe wearing white gloves.
