Annunciation: These 2 paintings — created by 2 different artists, one Italian and one French, at about the same time — portray the same narrative scene as their principal subject. Compare the way the 2 artists have rendered this scene. What is the expressive effect of each? What is the setting for the figures and how does that setting affect the mood of the story? Does the fact that one is an altarpiece and the other is from a private devotional have an effect on the way the artists depict the story?
