Simone Martini

‘The Annunciation’, section, by Simone Martini

Simone Martini ( c. 1284–1344) was a medieval Sienese artist. Check out the tartan style cloak on the angel! And Mary is interestingly defensive and worried looking on receiving the annunciation of the angel.
But I think my favourite thing about this sumptuous piece of blazing gold art is the detail…

  1. Hi, Idril! Just thought I’d let you know that I recommended this post on my blog today: http://artincambridge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/advent-series-how-to-look-at-religious_9.html

    I liked: the focus on the detail, and the ‘tartan’ cloak (what a hoot). Also, what a sumptuous, beautiful and bizarre painting.
