Two Angels

North Italian Painter (Verona?) Italian

Not on view

The very powerfully conceived frescoes of angels once decorated a chapel in the Torre della Gabbia in Mantua. The whole composition showed the Madonna and Child with Saint Catherine of Alexandria and Saint Lawrence. The angels were detached in 1870. They may date about 1328, when Luigi Gonzaga became lord of Mantua, and are important testaments to the enormous influence of Giotto in north Italy.
