This video is part of Art For Advent 2015. Posted for the fourth Sunday in Advent, this examines Leonardo da Vinci’s c. 1472-1480 The Annunciation. Situating the annunciation outdoors, Leonardo’s visual naturalism employs the mechanics of pictorial space to visualize the incarnation as the act of the invisible God entering the physical world. Written and narrated by Dr. James Romaine.
