The Annunciation – by Carl Bloch



This museum masterpiece is a wonderful painting of the moment Mary is told she is with child. Luke 1:30 “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.”

This piece is printed on high quality Museum Giclee Canvas.

For over 40 years The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made heavy use of Bloch’s paintings, mostly from the Frederiksborg Palace collection, in its church buildings and printed media. The LDS church has produced films depicting scriptural accounts of Christ’s public ministry, using Bloch’s paintings as models for the colour, light and overall set design as well as the movement of the actors in many of the films’ scenes. The most notable example of this is the 2000 film The Testaments of One Fold and One Shepherd.

Through the assistance of Danish-born artist Soren Edsberg, the acquisition of Christ healing at the pool of Bethesda, was made possible for The Museum of Art, Brigham Young University.  A second work by Bloch, an 1880 grisaille version of The Mocking of Christ, was purchased by BYU in June 2015.


ARTIST: Carl Bloch was a Danish painter who from a young age was consumed with the idea of becoming an artist. He was named Denmarks artist that was the greatest among the living. He produced 23 paintings of scenes from the life of Christ that as heavily used still today.
