It shows Jesus standing on a rock with his arms spread out, light radiating from behind. The people with him are kneeling before him and shielding their eyes from the light.
Fra Angelico (c. 1395 - February 18, 1455), born Guido di Pietro, was an Early Italian Renaissance painter. Known in Italy as il Beato Angelico, he was known to his contemporaries as Fra Giovanni da Fiesole (Brother John from Fiesole). Within his lifetime or shortly thereafter he was also called Il Beato (the Blessed), in reference to his skills in painting religious subjects. In 1982 Pope John Paul II conferred beatification, thereby making this title official. The works of Fra Angelico reveal elements that are both conservatively Gothic and progressively Renaissance.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
