Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image

In this image from the National Gallery of Art, the Annunciation forms the center of a four-panel work by Cosmè Tura (the left panel features St Francis of Assisi; the right the young Franciscan bishop St Louis of Toulouse). The four figures are set in a mountainous area at dawn (presumably; the Incarnation was the first "dawning" of the light of redemption on our sin-weary world).
