 Pedro Berruguete (c. 1450 – 1504)  The Annunciation, c. 1505, Cartuja de Miraflores (Burgos)

Pedro Berruguete was a Spanish painter; his art is regarded as a transitional style in Spain between gothic and Renaissance. Berruguete most famously created paintings of the first few years of the Inquisition and of religious imagery for Castilian retablos. He is considered by some as the first Renaissance painter in Spain.
