The Tuscan sculptor Andrea Contucci, known as Il Sansovino, was active in Florence, then in Portugal, before establishing himself in Rome in 1506. Six years later he was summoned by Pope Leo X to Loreto to direct the work there on the Santa Casa. In 1522, the artist carved the Annunciation placed on the sanctuary wall. Despite its complexity, the relief's composition remains clear. In cleverly designed progression, Gabriel emerges from the circling and descending group of flying angels and moves towards the Madonna, in an elaborate architectural setting. Sansovino is especially famous for his refined and essentially pictorial style, which exerted a great influence in Florence.
Along with your Annunciation by Sansovino Vatican medal, we will include a very special spiritual gift from Italy and Vatican City postcard... FREE of Charge!
