Title: Adoration of an Angel
Artist: Fra Angelico (Guido di Pietro)
Chronology: c. 1430-1440 ?
Technique: Oil on panel

This panel, was part of a ciborium, today fragmentary, usually identified with one Vasari described in 1568 on the high altar of the church of San Domenico in Fiesole, near Florence, in front of a Fra Angelico's triptych whose main elements were always kept in the building. A tabernacle with painted figures of Christ blessing and six angels (St. Petersburg, Hermitage) took probably place at the center of the dome.
