GIOTTO di Bondone
(b. 1267, Vespignano, d. 1337, Firenze)

No. 3 Scenes from the Life of Joachim: 3. Annunciation to St Anne (detail)

Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua

Giotto illustrates the intimacy of the scene using the contrast between interior and exterior - a maid sits spinning outside in front of the door.
