Set in the town of Ascoli, Italy, Venice-born renaissance painter Crivelli has captured the day of the Annunciation in stunning detail. Crivelli’s precision with colour and composition narrates two distinct events. The Virgin Mary, seen on the right, is seated indoors and a divine, heavenly shaft of light from above is breaking into the physical world symbolising the Annunciation. At the same time the Archangel Gabriel can be seen on the left talking to Saint Emidius, announcing the city’s newly granted self-governing status by the pope.

The fine details and striking colour of this painting ensures this works well as a winged puff or four point fold, with the contrast of the dark borders and the vibrant colours really standing out on a dark jacket.
