Fra Angelico, "The Annunciation Altarpiece" in the Museo del Prado (english)
Author: Almudena Sánchez.
English, also available in Spanish. Backcover. 24 x 29.5 cm. 80 pages.
This book has been published on the occasion of the technical study and conservation of the Annunciation Altarpiece by Fra Angelico undertaken for the exhibition Fra Angelico and the Rise of the Florentine Renaissance, held at the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid, from May 28 to September 15, 2019.
The main purpose of restoring the work, carried out by Almudena Sánchez Martín at the Prado Museum Restoration Workshop, is to recover the rich, vivid colors and intense light that imbue the scene. Both are characteristic elements both of this piece and of the artist's work in general but there were veiled under the layers of dirt and pollution accumulated on the surface over time.
