Photographer's Note

Annunciation - Benozzo Gozzoli - Eroli Museum of Narni (TR) The work, executed between 1449 and 1452 and signed by the Florentine painter, is of uncertain commission. Perhaps it was commissioned by the Eroli family, but the column in the center of the table is adorned with two heart-shaped leaves: instead of the three that make up the Eroli coat of arms. The work was located in the church of San Domenico in Narni, therefore it could have been commissioned by the same Dominican friars who own the church. Canes or the friars of San Domenico.rnThe work, damaged by humidity with the detachment of part of the painting, was then restored and transferred to the Eroli Museum, where we see it today.rnThe work is characterized by the sprigs of mistletoe painted on the blanket of the Virgin's bed, symbol of the Passion of Christ; the two keys of the dresser of Maria's bed that extend their shadow on the dresser itself; the white lilies, symbol of purity, in the hands of the angel and on the lawn of Mary's house; of white roses, also a symbol of purity. In various parts of the painting pure gold worked with leaf is used.
