Description:
The Oratory of St. John the Baptist (Oratorio di San Giovanni Battista) is a 14th-century small chapel or prayer hall best known for its Late Gothic style fresco cycle (1416) by the brothers Lorenzo and Jacopo Salimbeni. The lower register of the east wall includes several votive pictures, separately framed but also painted on the wall, that must have been executed at roughly the same time as the cycle. The two pictures of the Madonna, the Madonna dell'Umiltà and Madonna with Saints, are also attributed to the Salimbeni brothers for stylistic reasons. These paintings flank a niche, producing the effect of a triptych. (Source: Web Gallery of Art; http://www.wga.hu/in dex.html)
