Episode 125 – Florence: Uffizi Gallery – Leonardo da Vinci’s “Adoration of the Magi”
February 6, 2024

In 1481, Leonardo began work on a major altarpiece for the church of San Donato a Scopeto. At the same time, he sent his resume to the ruler of Milan, Ludovico Sforza, in hopes of landing the position of court artist for that duchy. This episode examines Leonardo’s painting of the Adoration of the Magi – most likely left unfinished because of the artist’s departure for Milan – and why much of what we see today may not be by the hand of Leonardo.
