From a Russian illuminated Gospel Book (late 14th or early 15th century), containing eight full page miniatures. The angel is attributed to Andrei Rublev, and is the only illumination usually attributed to him.

Bogdan Khitrovo, a powerful boyar, obtained the manuscript from Tsar Fyodor III. Khitrovo bequeathed the Gospel to the Trinity Monastery near Moscow, where Andrey Rublev was a monk.
