DRAMATIC ENCOUNTERS / THE ANGEL GABRIEL AND THE VIRGIN MARY

The story of an unforgettable meeting is always a gift for artists and writers alike. This well-illustrated weekly series will bring us face to face with paintings, poetry and fiction in which fame, beauty, myth, history and the human spirit bring people together in such dramatic circumstances that they, and we, are left thinking that never before have we seen, or read, anything quite like it.


There have been few more subtle examples of body language in art than the energy of the Angel at the Annunciation. Is he touching the ground? Has Mary noticed him? Is he a he? Fra Angelico, Leonardo, Giovanni Bellini, Titian and Tintoretto all claim to know what really happened, and Donne and Rilke find
the words for it in poems.
