For the final project I will compare two works of art and consider how a theme they both share finds expression in contemporary ideas and events. The visual work of art is by Simone Martini and is titled The Annunciation. Martini’s Annunciation was painted in approximately 1333 in Italy and represents a Medieval Gothic painting style. The literary artwork I will consider is The Divine Comedy, an epic poem penned by the Italian author Dante Aligheiri in 1320. I will compare the themes and tone of the works of art, as well as the experiences and attitudes of the main “characters” of each, the Virgin Mary and Dante. I will connect these commonalities to the contemporary experience of believers, in particular those who have their faith challenged by secular ideas, scientific theories, and other world events.
