Perfect Christmas gift for a religious art lover! This intimate oil painting is a master study after an Annunciation painting by Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli, most famous for his painting “Primavera” and “Venus”. My version measures 6″ x 6″ and is on 3/4″ canvas, ready for framing.
The Annunciation is a fascinating subject for me — The moment when the angel Gabriel announces Jesus’ birth to the Virgin Mary (Luke Chapter 2) is the moment when God comes to earth. The original Renaissance painting was completed in 1489 by Sandro Botticelli and is currently in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
