Benozzo Gozzoli's Journey of the Magi is the preeminent illustration of Medici Florence. A painting more famous than the painter himself, the fresco depicts a young Lorenzo the Magnificent, supreme financier of the Renaissance, leading a procession of wise men. Commissioned in the 1450s by Cosimo de Medici for the family's private chapel, it encapsulates the relationship between creator and patron.
