VALDAMBRINO, Francesco di
(active 1401, d. 1435, Siena)

Archangel Gabriel of the Annunciation

c. 1430
Polychrome wood
Chiesa della Madonna di Vitaleta, San Quirico d'Orcia

The statues of the Annunciation in Santa Maria in Vitaleta in San Quirico d'Orcia and those, from the same subject, in the cathedral of Montepulciano, were sculpted in his last years: they show a certain late Gothic mannerism, greater plasticity of forms and redundancy of the draperies.
