Barely discernible through a web of lines, Mary, in a pose typical of the Annunciation, kneels in the lower left corner and turns toward a vision of her rising son. At right Adam bears the true cross while onlookers from the Old Testament—including David with his harp and a horned Moses—crowd the sides of the drawing. Ideal for studies, red chalk allows artists to draw quickly. In this devotional drawing, Domenico Fetti deftly knits figures from the Old and New Testament together with rippling lines and scribbles.
