The Cortona Altarpiece (The Annunciation, 1433-34)
by Fra ANGELICO

This altarpiece, called Cortona Altarpiece (to be distinguished from the Cortona Triptych) and consisting of the Annunciation and six small predella pictures, was executed for the church San Domenico at Cortona, and in later centuries, probably during the French occupation, was transferred to the church Gesů, presently the Museo Diocesano.
