In Angelelli and De Marchi 1991 (see Literature) it is noted that the attribution of this intimate panel, depicting the Madonna Annunciate, to the great master of Tuscan quattrocento painting, Spinello Aretino, was supported by an oral communication from Filippo Todini. In a handwritten note dated 11 October 1958, Roberto Longhi also endorsed the attribution of this panel to Spinello, in his full maturity, and noted its similarities with the frescos in the sacristy of the Church of San Miniato al Monte, Florence.

Weppelmann dates the painting to around 1395 and notes the probability that it was originally part of a larger polyptych, of which the central panel and three predella panels are known: one predella panel depicts the Lamentation1 and a second shows the Adoration of the Magi.2 The third predella painting, showing the Nativity, is currently in a private collection in Genoa, while the central painting, a Madonna and Child enthroned with Saints, is housed in the Bucknell University Art Museum in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.3


NOTE ON PROVENANCE

The German art historian Prof. Dr. Alfred Stange, resident in Tutzing and Munich, acquired this Madonna Annunciate in August 1963. Prof. Stange was one of the leading German experts on gothic painting at that time. Between 1934 and 1961 he wrote the eleven-volume work Deutsche Malerei der Gotik.
