Angel


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description In Catholic, German-speaking countries, church interiors took on a lively and airy character during the 18th century, in part due to the brightly painted sculpture. Groups of joyously singing angels, such as this one standing on a cloud with his song book, were often clustered in the upper reaches of the churches. Its pose, wavy hair, and fluttering drapery all give an impression of weightless movement.
