A predella to go at the base of a larger composition by Lorenzo di Credi. This was painted in Verrocchio's workshop and attribution to the work (or, more likely, part of the work) to Leonardo's hand is largely disputed by most experts. It is believed that Lorenzo di Credi was involved to some extent in this work in the workshop and under the guidance of Verrochio. Perugino and Botticelli have also been linked to the Annunciation. If Leonardo was involved in collaboration on this piece, then he would have played a minor role as a member of Verrocchio's workshop.

Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
