"Holy Announcements" by Iz Maglow (1/3)

Holy Announcement is a presentation of various interpretations of Iz Maglow's modern paintings around the theme "Maria's Announcement".

In Cecilia & Susanna the artist shows related Christian topics like his paintings of "Holy Cecilia", his art work about the story "Susanna in the Bath" and further inspirations on "Announcements".

In La Voix Humaine the art artist shows how he transported the order and structure of his announcement paintings on to his work about "LA VOIX HUMAINE" - a totally different story, but with a very similar "Power Balance".

In numerous historical Fine Art Paintings the Christian story about "Maria's Announcement" is narrated in various ways.

For German Artist Iz Maglow the most interesting point in all of these paintings is the balance of power between the painted "actors" in those painted stories.
How does the Angel appear, - shy and submissive or dominant and commanding? And how does Maria react upon her visitor, - devoted to her messenger, rejecting or does she wish to disappear, as in some of Iz Maglow's art works?

Resolutely crossed arms deny any close approach. Obviously this woman is not very pleased about the old head's announcement. Did he really expect, she will be madly in love?
