Oops! I meant to say, The Annunciation is here at the Phila Museum of Art.

V, I did not know that's where it is. Someday I will have to get there. This might be my favorite painting ever.

PS Because of your introduction, I still check Funky on the website everyday! Thanks.

That just grabs your gut, doesn't it? Shows Mary as she would have been--a YOUNG girl. Kind of makes the story much more real...

This is one of my favorite paintings of all time. If you come to Philadelphia to see it, please let me know and we'll have a blogger meet-up. If it's still displayed the same way it was a few years ago, there is an equally haunting small pencil drawing of Mary as an old woman in an adjacent gallery, a poignant juxtaposition.
P.S. Ages ago, I saw on your profile that two of your favorite books are "Gilead" and "To Kill A Mockingbird," I wondered if we might have been separated at birth, but your choice of this painting seals it.
