Minor chips old restorations C.N Cochin (Paris 1715-1790) on his trip to Italy with Madame de Pompadour and her brother the Marquis de Marigny de Marigny, from 1749 to 1751, noticed, in the Church of the "Capucine di Castello" in Venice, a set of four works by Sebastiano Ricci. by Sebastiano Ricci. He described these canvases, which depicted "The Last Supper", "The Baptism of Christ" and "The Annunciation" as "vigorous" works, "of beautiful effect and manner". According to the descriptions in the various works describing Venice in the 18th century, Le Baptism of Christ was in the church opposite the Last Supper and at the entrance to the Chapel of the Annunciation The Angel Gabriel, probably our painting, stood opposite the Virgin. Like the masters of the Quattrocento, Sebastiano Ricci painted the Angel Gabriel on a gold background technique, but in our painting we find the profile inspired by Luca Giordano, the hands and the warm, luminous, brushed colors typical of Sebastiano Ricci's art.
