Correggio must have painted the Adoration of the Magi in around 1517, shortly after his Four Saints altarpiece, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and not long before he executed the frescoes in the Camera di San Paolo, Parma. Although the complex, confident composition of the Adoration represents the beginning of his mature achievement, in other respects it remains a transitional work.
