Fra Angelico Annunciation - Prado Madrid - restaured
Fra Angelico - Annunciation Prado (Restaured recently)


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.

The fine arts -
explain, reveal, meditate upon

In school we had "art history"
as a subject. On holidays,
we have often admired
works of art and visited museums.

In museum we often stand dumbfounded
before large pictures,
but also small masterpieces
often cause our hearts
to leap as well.

This is why this homepage
was created: Experiencing
and sharing art through
meditation and encounter.

Not in a professional academic sense, but still factual, 
practical and proven.
