Monday hero: Fra Angelico

Whenever I go to Florence, the Museum San Marco is a must.

This is where Fra Angelico (1395?-1455) painted a lot of his frescoes.

Walking up the stairs for the first time to be confronted with the Annunciation fresco (see top left) took my breath away.

The way Mary holds herself, and her expression, are absolutely beautiful.

There are smaller frescoes in the monks' cells, amongst them an equally beautiful smaller Annunciation (above left)
