Leonardo Da Vinci: Adoration of the Magi
I chose this work by Da Vinci because it not one of the most popular works that is talked about for linear perspective because it is not as obvious as some others. There are many sketches that came before this and some of them are brought up because they show the use of linear perspective more clearly. This is one of his early paintings. The Virgin Mary and child are in the center with the tree of life and the ruins of a pagan building in the background. It is believed that on the far right side, there is also a self portrait.
