(b. 1500, Treviso, d. 1571, Venice)


c. 1555
Oil on canvas, 99 x 134 cm
Pinacoteca Nazionale, Siena

This painting is predominated by the representation of architecture: the Annunciation is set in front of a powerfully foreshortened loggia, reminiscent of works by Jacopo Sansovino. The Alpine landscape beyond the arches of the loggia conjures up parts of Veneto where the famous villas of Venetian patricians were being built around that time.
