Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image

Annunciation, Fra Bartolomeo (1497)
Shortly after completing this painting, artist Baccio della Porta entered the Dominicans (henceforth being known as "Brother Bartolomeo"). Although he gave up painting for a while, his religious superiors commanded him to resume his artwork, saying that it would benefit the Order. He and the great Raphael knew and influenced each other's work.
