The Annunciation
(La Anunciación)
Painted around 1430 / 45.
ORIGINAL SIZE: 63″ X 70.86″

Painted for the church of Santo Domingo de Fiesole, later being transferred to Spain, placed in the Convent of the Loyal Barefeet, and later to the Prado. On the first plane we see the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary. On the second plane we see the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden.
Curiosity: the perspective of the bench, an inanimate object, shows the mastery of the painter over his work.
