Adoration of the Magi is a 1636–1637 painting by Artemisia Gentileschi. Along with Saint Januarius in the Amphitheatre at Pozzuoli and Saints Proculus and Nicea, it was commissioned by Martín de León Cárdenas, bishop of Pozzuoli for Pozzuoli Cathedral. Adoration was held in the Museo di San Martino in Naples for around fifty years for conservation before being returning to its original position in the Cathedral in May 2014.
