Art for Advent, Fourth Sunday

For this, the fourth Sunday of Advent, art historian Dr. James Romaine concludes his YouTube series Seeing Art History with a discussion of the tondo (circular) Adoration of the Magi (c. 1440-1460), begun by Fra Angelico but painted primarily by Fra Filippo Lippi. Found in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., the painting may have belonged to the Florentine Lorenzo de' Medici. A  detailed essay about the work is found on the NGA's Website.
