Catalogue Note

The attribution of this charming pair of Angels is based largely on a comparison with the Angels from the High Altar of the Venetian church of San Lorenzo, which are now in the Museo Correr (Rossi, op. cit.). Traditionally given to Girolamo Campagna, these figures have recently been re-attributed to Nicolò Roccatagliata and his son, Sebastian Nicolini (Kryza-Gersch, op. cit.). The sweetly smiling, heavy-lidded features, dense wavy hair and angular drapes of the present figures are characteristic of the Roccatagliata workshop.
