Adoration of the Magi tapestry

Adoration of the Magi nativity tapestry is based on art by Gentile da Fabriano (1370-1427). Fabriano was an Italian painter known for his participation in the International Gothic style. Gentile was born in or near Fabriano, in the Marche. His mother died some time before 1380 and his father, Niccol di Giovanni Massi, retired to a monastery in the same year, where he died in 1385.

Gentile worked in various places in central Italy, mostly in Tuscany. His best known works are his Adoration of the Magi (1423) and Flight into Egypt. By 1408 Gentile da Fabriano was working in Venice. By the 1420s he was working in Florence where he painted his famous altarpiece depicting the Adoration of the Magi (1423), now in the Uffizi and regarded as one of the masterpieces of the International Gothic style. In 1425 he left Florence for Siena and Orvieto (where he painted his fresco of the Madonna and Child in the Cathedral) before arriving in Rome. He died in 1427 while working on frescoes (since destroyed) in the Basilica of St. John in Lateran. He is commonly said to have been buried in the church now called S. Francesca Romana in Florence, but his tomb vanished; there is evidence, however, that he may be buried in the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, in Rome, the place of his death.

This fine Belgian tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for ease of wall-hanging. The tapestry is now discontinued and we only have 1 left in stock!
