Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image


This week's image of the Annunciation was completed ca. 1490 by Pietro de Perugino (Peter from Perugia). It can be found in the Church of Santa Maria Nuova in Fano (Central Italy). As for Perugino (whose family name was Vannucci), not only was he teacher to the artistic genius Raphael, he also contributed to the Sistine Chapel!
