Annunciation by the Master of the Triptych, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
About the artist (from the Museum site):
This master is recognized as the enameler of a triptych with a central scene of the Annunciation flanked by donor portraits of Louis XII of France (1462–1515) and his queen, Anne de Bretagne (d. 1514), painted between 1499 and 1514. Now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, that triptych is arguably the most beautiful early sixteenth-century Limoges enamel in existence. This plaque is a variant of the London triptych’s central panel.
