Adoring Angel

Piero di Giovanni Tedesco Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 305

One of a series of eight almost identical angels by the artist from the Cathedral of Florence, Santa Maria del Fiore, this figure was paired with and confronted an example now in the Duomo Museum in Florence. These sculptures and the others in the series flanked a larger statue of a martyr saint (Saints Stephen, Laurence, Victor, or Barnabas).
