Annunciation
1489-90 Mosaic Porta della Mandorla, Duomo, Florence In addition to the fresco in the Tornabuoni Chapel, Ghirlandaio created another Annunciation between 1489 and 1490 using the ancient mosaic technique, which he had learnt from Alessio Baldovinetti and which he had been able to employ when restoring a few old mosaics. There is no lectern in this mosaic version of the Annunciation, though the influence of Leonardo's painting is still felt, particularly in the spatial arrangement - a building on the left behind Mary and a view over a wall to a landscape. Above the Porta della Mandorla on Florence Cathedral there still exists this mosaic. Vasari wrote the following comment on it: "Domenico enriched the modern art of working in mosaic infinitely more than any other Tuscan, as his works, though few, amply demonstrate...". Of this mosaic destined for the Porta della Mandorla Domenico only executed the cartoon, which was probably translated into mosaic by his brother David. Artist: GHIRLANDAIO, Domenico Painting Title: Annunciation , 1451-1500 Painting Style: Italian , , religious
