Art sublime

The Blessed Angelico: The Dawn of the Renaissance – the largest exhibition entirely dedicated to Beato Angelico since 1955 – is at Rome’s Capitoline Museums until 5 July 2009.

If you’re planning a visit to Rome this summer, this is a unique opportunity to see these beautiful paintings in one place. And if not, you can view them in Museo in Comune Roma’s wonderful Beato Angelico set on Flickr.

For those of you who read Italian, Luisa Carrada discusses the painting shown here, the Annunciation, and its sublime detail in her Mestiere di Scrivere blog post of 16 May. A copywriter and editor with an art history background, Luisa describes the painting much more eloquently than I ever could.
