The year in which the Italian painter Benvenuto Tisi da Garofalo completed the announcement, he hid in the painting itself. The Roman numeral MDXXVIII is immortalized above the chimney: 1528. The artist's coat of arms motif, the carnation, also finds its place in the foreground of the painting. She has earned the Benvenuto Tisi born Italians the nickname Garofalo, derived from the Italian word for carnation (Garofano). Like most of Garofalo's works, which painted until his blindness in 1550, the announcement reveals a biblical motif. The Archangel Gabriel with wings, wreath and golden ornaments announces to reading Mary that she will give birth to the Son of God. In contrast to Gabriel, Mary is dressed rather simply and is in an intimate, home-like environment with a book, a burning fireplace and a resting cat. Next to the archangel diagonally symbolizes the Trinity: the father as an old man in the clouds, the son as a small child and the Holy Spirit as a dove. Announcing his fate on earth, the child wears a wooden cross with nails. © Meisterdrucke
