    “While Orsanmichele continued to function as a commercial site [grain market] for some time, pilgrims inspired by the story of the miraculous appearance of the Madonna there began visiting the site in increasing numbers, especially in the uncertain times after the Black Plague struck in 1348. As the legend of the new ‘Madonna of the Graces’ grew a tabernacle was commissioned to protect it – still in place, this masterpiece by Andrea Orcagna was completed in 1359. Both the painting and the elaborate tabernacle provide excellent examples of the aesthetics of the late medieval period.”
