Fra Angelico's Annunciation
Fra Angelico's Annunciation (see in high resolution)
Samuel Menashe's Annunciation is the best comment I can think of. I do not know which version of the Annunciation he was actually referring to: possibly Giovanni di Paolo's, in the National Gallery. He had already written a poem about Paolo's work, but I think his observation corresponds better to Fra Angelico's painting.
