Notes

Summary:
Faithfully adhering to the Florentine tradition, Alessio Baldovinetti made refined use of a clear, almost sharp line, together with a great curiosity for the tiniest details. In this work, note the slender elegance of the Madonna, whose traditional gesture of reverent surprise at the angel's announcement has been replaced by an almost mannered pose, worthy of some worldly ritual. The artist attempts a perspective view by setting the scene under a portico, thus creating a background plane with the tops of the trees that can be seen above the surrounding wall.
