Albertinelli relocates the Annunciation to a hall-like interior space that opens up in the background onto a landscape that finds a counterpart in the foreground in the imaginary niches. Details such as the arrow or the hem of St Lucia's robe protrude from the foreground, thus creating a playful optical illusion for the spectator. While the calm figurative composition, the pietra-serena architecture and the view all draw on the works of Pietro Perugino, the powerful presence of the angel points to Fra Bartolommeo, with whom Albertinelli repeatedly worked.
