The Visitation (c. 1700)

The Visitation (c. 1700)
Antonio Bellucci 1654 – 1726
oil on canvas (113 × 56 cm) — c. 1700
Luke 1:40 - And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
Pregnant Mary visits her cousin Elisabeth, who was also pregnant. Mary would give birth to Jesus, Elisabeth to John the Baptist.

Bellucci turned the scene into an baroque happening, filled with angels.
