Notes NOTES: Part of the Burlington Devonshire Collection, this drawing is by an unidentified 16th century Italian architect. The tabernacle takes the form of a three-bayed temple building, the central vestibule containing the host flanked by angels. Sketched faces of praying nuns can be seen in the windows on either side.
