MELOZZO ANGEL, BLONDE WITH LUTE by Melozzo da Forli
The ancient Christmas Carol proclaims, "Angels We Have Heard On High.."
From childhood we associate angels with the heavenly music of our most precious religious experiences. This is one of a number of beloved angelic images painted as frescoes by the great Melozzo da Forli years before Christopher Columbus set sail for the New World.
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.
