    Comments: A wonderful painting, the colours are so nice
    and bright. I especially like the way Botticelli
    made the wings of the engles. It gives it a great effect.

    Comments: the painting is very aesthetically pleasing on many levels, but i'm surprised no one took notice (or didn't comment on) what exactly is going on in the piece. the angel gabriel seems to be beseeching the virgin mary, as if in desperation, while the virgin mary seems as if she is repelling him, having a pained look on her face. was this a painting that expressed his heretical views? it was painted in a monestary, so i would figure that it would be more of a happy picture. very interesting analysis.

    Comments: I think this is a beautiful painting, chiaroscuro had been used effectively. This portrays great artistic quality and the golden mean gives it a seem of perfection. Well done Botticelli.

    Comments: This painting portrays Mary being told by the angel Gabriel that she will bear the Son of God. With the look on her face we are told that she did feel as if she enquired "why her". Cestello which is Latin for Heavenly, is really seen in this painting.Gabriel hold lilies in his hand to show Mary's purity. Frankly, this painting is simply beautiful.

    Comments: I believe this painting is one of the best paintings this world has to offer. Someone made a comment of how they believe that the Virgin is repelling Gabriel. But I believe that Boticelli captured the trueness of emotion that would have taken place. The color and contrast that he uses to portray holiness is amazing.
