Details: This poster is of The Annunciation, by Gerard David. It shows the angel Gabriel telling Mary that she would conceive Jesus, the Son of God. Her hands are crossed at her chest, and there is a glowing dove above her.
Gerard David (c. 1460 ¿ August 13, 1523) was an Early Netherlandish painter and manuscript illuminator known for his brilliant use of color. At the time of David's death, the glory of Bruges and its painters was on the wane: Antwerp had become the leader in art as well as in political and commercial importance. Of David's pupils in Bruges, only Isenbrant, A. Cornelis and Ambrosius Benson achieved importance. The works on which David's fame has rested most securely are the great altarpieces: the Marriage of St Catherine; the triptych of the Madonna Enthroned and Saints; the Annunciation; and above all, the Madonna with Angels and Saints, which he painted without asking a fee from the Carmelite Nuns of Sion at Bruges.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
