The hill in this composition was freely adapted from Sassetta’s Journey of the Magi (1320s), in the Pinacoteca in Siena, while the city is a detail taken from Agnolo Gaddi’s frescoes in the Cappella del Sacro Cingolo in the cathedral in Prato, executed between 1392 and 1395. The comet comes from a depiction in the Augsburger Wunderzeichenbuch (Book of Miracles), dating to the middle of the 16th century.
