THEMED PAINTINGS - The Annunciation


"The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you." Luke 1: 26-28

The Annunciation  when the angel Gabriel appeared to the Blessed Virgin Mary to announce that she had been chosen by God to bear His Son. Annunciation dates back at least to the fifth century.
 For centuries, artists have pictured Mary at this moment in a variety of devout settings, surrounded by angels, covered in red velvet or standing amid tapestries and silver candles. These paintings can have a lot of power, and we can study the symbolism and love the artist lavished on them for a long time, being drawn even deeper into the mystery.
