Virgin Mary: Annunciation of Death -- Virgin Mary, nimbed, veiled, reclines on draped bed. She raises her hands toward wingless nimbed angel, raising left hand and extending palm branch in right hand toward her. Behind the bed sits Evangelist John (?), asleep, resting on his arms on his knee.
Scene beneath multilobed arch, with diapered backgrounds, within decorated frame with foliate terminals at corners.
