Annunciation to the shepherds by Taddeo Gaddi

The Annunciation to the shepherds on the back wall of this chapel is generally considered the first night light scene painting in western art.

These frescoes (1332-38) in the Baroncelli Chapel of Santa Croce in Florence are by Taddeo Gaddi, a close follower of Giotto.
