Abstract

This is one of Fra Angelico's most profound works. Hushed, respectful, and completely devout, the assembled figures present a scene that equates clarity of form, purity of colour, and rationally conceived proportions with transcendent spirituality. The mode of expression is dignified, rational, and human.
