Literature

S. Bruzzese, "Legnano, San Magno," in G. Agosti et al.Bernardino Luini e i suoi figli p. 56.

Catalogue Note

These charming musical angels and putti are based on figures from Bernardino Luini's polyptych painted circa 1525 for the church of San Magno, Legnano, near Milan (for more on the San Magno altarpiece see G. Agosti et al., Bernardino Luini e suoi figli, Milan 2014, pp. 53-59, cat. no. 7, reproduced figs. 51-57).

In Luini’s prototype, the musical angels play at the feet of the enthroned Virgin and Child in the central panel while the putti hover above them.
