The Annunciation (1465-75). Hans Memling (Netherlandish, active by 1465–died 1494). Oil on wood. The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
May have been the left wing of a triptych commissioned by the Clugny family, whose coat of arms decorates the carpet and window.
The composition is based on a design by Rogier van der Weyden, painted by Memling who, technical evidence suggests, was a journeyman in Rogier’s workshop before establishing himself in Bruges in 1465.
