I once saw a painting of Abraham being blessed by Malchezediek.

I’ve also saw paintings of St. Ferdinand III with his military leaders riding into Seville (I think it was Seville). This portrayed the retaking of the city from the Muslims after hundreds of years of occupation.

This is a very famous painting due to way it handles Mary and presents here as a young Jewish girl (as she of course was) and in that respect it breaks with some traditions of how she is handled in religious artwork.

I have a copy in my studio that I took out of one of those calendars they give away each year at church. I think it’s a beautiful expression of the Annunciation.

It is, it also very famous for attempting to render Mary in a more naturalistic style as a young girl of her era. It’s often cited in histories of religious art for that reason. I first ran across it in a Taschen book years ago.
