"The Dormition and Assumption of the Virgin Mary" by Fra Angelico

Painted in the 1420s, this stunning work by Fra Angelico in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, MA, is the third of 4 reliquaries illustrating episodes from the “Life of the Virgin Mary.” While most American museums possess fragments of larger works by the artist, this is one of the rare examples of a complete work by the artist in the United States. Its sublime use of color and light exemplify the unique spiritual visual language of the priest-painter. Buona visione!
