Lippi, The Assumption
of the Annunciation
Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, Rome
This is actually a detail from the larger Assumption and Annunciation
with Aquinas Presenting Cardinal Carafa to Our Lady.
The apostles stand at the
base of the larger image, flanking the
Annunciation inset but gazing up at the ascending Virgin Mary.
