The Annunciation, with Saint Emidius

The Annunciation, with Saint Emidius is an altarpiece by Italian artist Carlo Crivelli showing an artistic adaptation of the Annunciation. The altarpiece was painted for the Church of SS. Annunziata in Ascoli Piceno to celebrate the town's self-government, granted in 1482 by Pope Sixtus IV. The painting has been housed in the National Gallery of London since 1864, when it was donated by Lord Taunton.
