This is just incredibly beautiful. I admire the work of this artist very much.

But, poor Mary, she didn't triumph after all...heresy abounds! Especially among the clergy! :-)

Fascinating! Look at all those angels flying around!

You have piqued my curiosity and I'm off now to Google and learn more about rebel angels.

Molto bella quest'opera del Cavalier Perugini.
Uno splendido trionfo.
A me piacciono molto anche i suoi quadri, tra i quali "Apollo e la Sibilla Cumana", "Ritratto di Gentiluomo" e soprattutto "Carità Romana" perchè in questi l'artista si avvicina di più al classicismo che io amo molto.
Ciao
a presto
