DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
This is an ink drawing on a 3 1/2" × 4 1/2" piece of Bristol board. I drew it using fine-tipped pens; calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes; and brass leaf.
The original has been sold.
It is formatted as an historiated initial M containing figures of the Archangel Gabriel and the Blessed Virgin at the moment of the Annunciation. The text is Gabriel’s salutation:
Ave Maria, gratia plena. Dominus tecum.
Mary holds a distaff, indicating that she was at work sewing the veil of the Temple.
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.
