Medieval Exhibition in DC

The Annunciation to the Virgin

The Annunciation to the Virgin

My wife and I saw this exhibit last week during one of our frequent trips to the National Gallery here in Washington, DC. This exhibition, which features medieval manuscript illuminations rarely on display, runs through August 2nd. The manuscripts were in terrific condition – mostly religious in content, but some that were featured dealt with classical material as well. Go see it if you can.
