The Annunciation

The Annunciation
Leonardo da Vinci 1452 – 1519
tempera on panel (98 × 217 cm) — ca. 1474

Luke 1:28 - And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

For a long time The Annunciation was attributed to Domenico Ghirlandaio, until experts recognized a young Leonardo as its maker. One deciding aspect is the background: water and mountains under a hazy sky are typical Da Vinci. The detailed clothing would be more in the style of Botticelli.
