Madonna della Querce, Florence

With an octagonal plan, a domed vault, reproducing Brunelleschi's schemes, the oratory Madonna della Querce (Madonna of the Oaks) is preceded by a porch with remains of frescoes on the walls attributed to Paolo Schiavo.

The picture shows the entrance wall with the Adoration of the Magi, and the Annunciation with a saint (perhaps St Giuliano).
