"Carlo Dolci. (see no. 552.) the Archangel Gabriel. 22 x 27. Original in the Feroni collection, Uffizi Gallery, Florence. The archangel bears in his hand the lily, the emblem of purity. In many pictures of the 'annunciation' by the old masters, the celestial messenger is painted with this emblem, typical of the spotlessness of her to whom he announced the tidings that she was to be the mother of the messiah."
