Early in his development, the forms had been quite arbitrary and the result stylish but implausible. Steadily, his design was regularized according to classical models, his palette reached an unprecedented optical range, and his light became naturalistically descriptive. A small altarpiece probably for private devotion, this picture sets the Virgin and the archangel Gabriel in a handsome loggia, like that of an actual villa by Palladio, with whom the artist often collaborated. It is one of numerous late versions of the subject, with no sign of the workshop participation that had become frequent by then. The highlights have lost little of their energy, coursing across the surfaces and infusing the work with a metaphoric vitality. The figures, however, have been simplified in shape, their cadence slowed and their gesture subdued. And the palette is relatively restricted and uniform in value. In such paintings, the heroic splendor of the artist’s mature style yields to something less calculated and more reflective. The Suida-Manning Collection includes two other paintings from the same period, each a fragment from a larger composition. The composition depends upon a painting by Tintoretto. Infrared examination by Stephen Gritt (Feb. 2010) revealed no variation between underdrawing and execution.

"Hombre constructivo" exemplifies the lessons about constructive art taught at the workshop. Students learned to reduce the representation of objects to their basic visual elements of line, form, and color. Then they integrated figures into a grid created through the Golden Mean, a system of proportions developed in Ancient Greece. To emphasize the abstract quality of the work, instructors taught pupils to paint with limited colors. In this painting, Alpuy tries to balance these principles with a more personal style, favoring bright colors and establishing a looser relation between figure and geometric structure.", "Dedication" : "Gift of Judy S. and Charles W.
