Painting oil on canvas of the Sienese school of the early seventeenth century depicting the adoration of the shepherds from the measures of 30 x 38 without frame and 40 x 48 with frame.

Differently from many Adoration, this differs because it is carried out by day and not by night; this because with the wide and serene diffusion of the light on the countryside one wants to allude to the grace that extends in the world with the birth of Jesus; in the background we see a small mountainous landscape symbolizing the tortuous path of the Christian in the world.

The shepherds are charged figures of immediate human intensity but also of deep symbolic meanings, the narrated scene is full of solemn and passionate descriptive details. It should be noted that the adult figures and their gazes are all focused on the child, who, although not at the center of the scene, is the fulcrum.

Finally, as a devotional sign of the painter we can see how Giuseppe begins to distinguish himself and to characterize himself ever more clearly in the figurative context thanks to more noble and delicate clothes and expressions of feeling and affection that are ever increasing, while the Madonna with her hair collected giving milk to the child makes explicit his love and explicitness perfectly the unity of the holy family.
