Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image

Happy New Year!
To help you begin the year praying the Angelus three times a day, here is the first of many Annunciation images for you.

I am sorry I cannot find this 15th century illumination where I originally discovered it: The Walters Art Museum. I can read in the text is "Beautiful Mother" and "We praise you...for seven joys." Presumably this is from a private owner's Book of Hours, which often contained private devotions in addition to the liturgical texts of the Office.
