After Fra Angelico (born Guido di Pietro, 1395-1455). Tempera on gold painting on panel titled "The Annunciation and Adoration of the Magi." Embossed with a collector's red wax seal and several pencil inscriptions along the verso. The verso additionally bears a collector trade card from George Davis Barron - a wealthy mining magnate who lived in upstate New York and died in 1947. Fra Angelico's original, currently housed at the Museo di San Marco in Florence, Italy, was created to hold relics in its frame and was accompanied by three other reliquary panels depicting other religious scenes of the Virgin Mary including the Coronation of the Virgin, the Dormition and Assumption of the Virgin, and the Madonna della Stella.
Height: 34 1/2 in x width: 23 in x depth: 4 1/2 in.
