Shepherds Purse: Genre Catalog --Annunciation

Return to main page

The most common source of shepherd imagery comes from Annunciation scenes. There are sub-genres within this group: the shepherds may be in a group clustered around a fire at night, or the scene may be depicted as daytime with the shepherds dancing. Sometimes an Annunciation scene is tucked away in a background corner in a Nativity scene.
