"Primitif De Savoie XVth Century" 9.5.1970

The stamp on this FDC depicts a painting of The Annunciation (from the Vulgate Latinannuntiatio (or nuntiatio) nativitatis Christi), also referred to as the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Annunciation of Our Lady or the Annunciation of the Lord, is the Christian celebration of the announcement by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus, the Son of God, marking his Incarnation. Gabriel told Mary to name her son Yehoshua.  The painting is believed to be the work of an unknown native of Savoy in the 15th Century, thus the name given to the painting.

Thank you Merja.
