14th Century Byzantine Icon - Antiques with Gary Stover

The 14th century was a time of dramatic upheaval in the Middle East, but out of that chaos emerged a beautiful painting of the Annunciation, which has weathered the centuries and come down to us so that we may marvel at it. We had the great luck of coming upon this work of art when a man & woman came calling at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver and told us how they came to own it. This program relates that account, as we analyze the painting, attempting to date and describe it in artistic terms and as an icon of the Melkite Church.
