Before Fra Bartolommeo’s visit to Venice in 1408 he preferred to draw his compositions with pen and ink, which enabled him to depict voluminous drapery with flowing lines. Following his trip to Venice, he was more preoccupied with texture, light and atmosphere, for which black and red chalk were better suited. The significance of this scene with an angel offering a tiara to a kneeling man remains a mystery.
