Hello to all friends of "Fine Arts & meditation"!
The fine arts & meditation
Recently restored Fra Angelico:
Fra Angelico - Annunciation
Prado - Madrid - Spain
The colours in this painting, painted 600 years ago in tempera on wood, are marvellous and incredibly fresh. Still precious colours (lapis- lazuli and gold), the angel rather stormy, Mary bows to the word yes. The vanishing point again in the small window of the room, this time open with its simple decoration.
In 1611 the painting arrived in Spain, in 1861 it was 'rediscovered' in a women's convent in Madrid and arrived in the Prado. Restoration has restored it to its original splendour.
Significantly and wonderfully, the closed garden has been opened up - to the expulsion of men from paradise. The painting already breathes the spirit of the Renaissance in Italy, celebrated as the beginning of modernity.
