The Annunciation

“The Annunciation” is a depiction of a visit to The Virgin Mary by Archangel Gabriel retold in Luke 1.26-39. During this visit, Gabriel tells Mary that she’s going to conceive an infant by the name of Jesus (Son of God), whose “reign will never end”. Da Vinci wasn’t the only artist inspired by this myth – in fact, it has been a popular theme in the art of Florence. “The Annunciation” is currently at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
