In Leonardo da Vinci's Annunciation, who is depicted with the virgin Mary?
The subject matter of Leonardo da Vinci's Annunciation is drawn from Luke 1:26-39. It depicts the angel Gabriel, sent by God to announce to the virgin Mary that she will miraculously conceive and give birth to a son, Jesus, who will be called "the Son of God". The painting was begun by Andrea del Verrocchio who used lead-based paint and heavy brush strokes. He left a note for da Vinci, one of this students, to finish the background and the angel. Leonardo used light brush strokes and no lead. When the Annunciation was x-rayed, Verrocchio's work was evident while Leonardo's angel was invisible.
