Modern Artists Capture the Annunciation


The Annunciation is celebrated on March25th.The artistic tradition continues through hundreds, why even thousands of years because modern artists are still fascinated by Mary and her encounter with the angel Gabriel. There are so many moments to capture her initial shock, fear, sense of awe and wonder, questions, acceptance and final glorious in filling by the Holy Spirit.Each artist reflects a different facet of truth with the Spirit of God shining through each painting in a myriad of different hues and tones and nuances.
