Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image

This week's Annunciation is a 15th century piece from a precursor of the Dutch masters, an artist only identified in 1903, and even then not by name but by attribution: "The Master of the Virgin among Virgins." (Clearly, he painted more than one depiction of the Blessed Virgin Mary!)
