Roberto Longhi. "Qualità e industria in Taddeo Gaddi, I." Paragone 9 (January 1959), pp. 37–40, pl. 15, as in a private collection; attributes it to Taddeo Gaddi and dates it 1334–40 based on stylistic similarities with the work of Maso di Banco; calls it part of an altarpiece, tentatively suggesting a connection to a lost work by Taddeo recorded by Ghiberti and Vasari in the church of Santissima Annunziata, Florence (formerly Santa Maria dei Servi).
Alessandro Parronchi. Studi su la dolce prospettiva. Milan, 1964, pp. 137–38, suggests that it formed a pinnacle of Taddeo's lost altarpiece from the church of Santissima Annunziata (formerly Santa Maria dei Servi), dating this work about 1332.

Magnolia Scudieri in Il Museo Bandini a Fiesole. Ed. Magnolia Scudieri. Florence, 1993, p. 82, identifies the Annunciation in Fiesole as coming from the church of the Compagnia di Santa Maria della Croce al Tempio in Florence based on the medallions in the upper left and right corners and on Richa's mention of "una Nunziata assai antica" on the high altar of that church ("Notizie istoriche delle chiese fiorentine divise ne' suoi quartieri," Florence, vol. 2, 1755, p. 132).

Oslo, 1994, vol. 1, p. 93; vol. 2, punch chart 5.2, as location unknown; relates it to the Saint Anthony Abbot in the collection of Alexander Rudigier, Munich; lists it with works by Taddeo and identifies punch marks that it possibly shares with works by the Master of the Dominican Effigies, the Master of San Lucchese, and Agnolo Gaddi.
Keith Christiansen in "Recent Acquisitions, A Selection: 1996–1997." Metropolitan Museum of Art Bulletin 55 (Fall 1997), p. 24, ill.

Florence, 2007, pp. 18, 20, 23 n. 2, pp. 24, 26–27 n. 2, figs. 1, 3 (reconstruction), publishes a reconstruction of the altarpiece, with the Annunciation in the Museo Bandini, Fiesole, flanked by Saints Julian and Anthony Abbot, noting that Scudieri [see Ref. 1993] has shown that the Annunciation comes from the church of the Compagnia di Santa Maria della Croce al Tempio, founded in 1343.
