BLONDE ANGEL PLAYING THE VIOLIN by Melozzo da Forli - Fresco, 1480
The ancient Christmas Carol proclaims, "Angels We Have Heard On High ..."
From childhood we associate angels with heavenly music. This beloved angel is only a fragment of a great frescoed chapel painted by the great Melozzo da Forli years before Christopher Columbus set sail for the New World. All that remain are this and a dozen more fragments displaying the painter's complete mastery of his art.
Melozzo's fresco incorporates vivid colors and portrays this angelic musician of striking beauty and purity, the blonde sunburst a radiant reflection of heavenly light and brilliance.
Original now on display in the Pinacoteca Vaticana, Vatican City, Rome.
