Now both pictures – unfinished da Vinci “adoration of the Magi” Lippi is located in the Uffizi Museum in Florence.
As critics mark, the original composition “adoration of the Magi” by Leonardo da Vinci has no analogues in Italian painting. In the background are the ruins of some Palace, riders on horses, obscure rock, in the center sits Mary with the newborn Jesus, surrounded by pilgrims. As shown in the right part of the picture a young man the researchers saw the author’s picture.
