Death and Assumption Of The Virgin (Magnet)

Details

The Death and Assumption of the Virgin
1430-1434
Fra Angelico, Italian, about 1400-1455

Possessed of great delicacy, this little painting also compels attention through its complexity. In the lower scene, enclosed by a wall, the body of the Virgin lies on a bier draped with sumptuous gold textiles. She is surrounded by Christ's disciples, who miraculously appeared as she lay dying. Four of them prepare to lift the body and carry it to the tomb. In the center of the composition, Christ too has appeared to accept the Virgin's soul, represented by the infant he holds in his arms.
