Emigrants from the Netherlands in the seventeenth century, the Duyckinck family established a dynasty of painters in New York who produced portraits and religious paintings for the Calvinist community of the Dutch Reformed Church. This Annunciation scene, based on an illustration from a 1744 Bible published in the Netherlands, is stylistically associated with the family’s artistic workshop.
