Painting of The Annunciation

Father Edmund

22 Jan 2023

An update for the parish: the beautiful copy of The Annunciation from St Mary of the Angels, hanging in the Sanctuary is a reproduction of an actual painting owned by the parish.

The scene depicts the Annunciation of the Lord and the original image is in the Quiranale Palace in Rome, painted by Guido Reni. Having made contact with an art restorer some months ago, we are in conversation re: repair and proper conservation of this painting to ensure that the image is preserved and safeguarded for future generations to enjoy. Below is an image of the painting before the appraisal process was begun. I will share the report from the conservator and what can be done as the results are sent through.
