The Annunciation (1432, Museo del Prado) go to comments

By Fra Angelico (Italy, 1387-1455).

Quintessence of early renaissance religious art. I like the composition and the contrast between the organic background and the geometric shape (with weird perspective) of the building. Pure and enchanting.
