Cosimo Tura: 'The Virgin Annunciate'
The painting shows Mary appearing to receive rays emanating from the Holy Spirit (in the form of a Dove) as she receives the news from the Angel Gabriel that she will give birth to the Son of God (Luke 1: 26-38).

This work is probably one of a pair of panels, the other of which would have depicted the Angel Gabriel.
