Art for Advent, Second Sunday

For the second Sunday of Advent, art historian Dr. James Romaine discusses Jan van Eyck's exquisite painting titled The Annunciation (c. 1434-1436) for his YouTube series Seeing Art History. Part of the Andrew Mellon Collection at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.,  the early Netherlandish painting is thought to have been part of a triptych, a larger, three-part altarpiece. As Romaine points out, it is both visually stunning and replete with religious symbolism.
