  • Part of a series inspired by key events in the New Testament (see also: Last Supper, Crucifixion, and Descent), this book presents a beautiful collection of over 100 masterpieces from throughout history depicting the Annunciation. Taken from the whole tradition of Christian art, ANNUNCIATION demonstrates how the event has been depicted by artists throughout history, beginning with a Roman mosaic of 440 AD and proceeding chronologically with works by medieval and Renaissance artists, Old Masters and up to modern figures such as Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol. The human drama and emotion of the scene has a universal appeal, and the compelling images reveal changing styles and interpretation within Christian art.
