Title
Three Magi
Description
Composition in black and white. Contour lines and dashed. Group of eight men, making music band, occupying almost the entire composition. The figures are distributed in two rows. The four front handle musical instruments; from the left to the right we see: An accordionist, violinist, musician playing drum and a clarinetist. The four musicians who are behind, one sees only the heads. To the right of the composition, next to the band, a figure 3/4 toward the on the left holding a banner in which we see represented the three wise men on camels, against the background of hills and star shining in the sky. All figures have defined facial features, all of which are with open mouth suggesting they are singing and all wear long pants and closed shoes. Horizontal light and dark areas go through the figures suggesting shadows.
