These charming putti playing among flowers have affinities with the work of the Procaccini brothers, who were originally from Bologna but mostly worked in Milan.


It was the Procaccini brothers who inspired the sculptural quality of the angels’ bodies, with strong contrasts of light and shade, as well as the composition with multiple figures. 

___________________________________________


Ces charmants putti jouant avec des fleurs sont à rapprocher de la production des frères Procaccini, originaires de Bologne mais ayant travaillé principalement à Milan.


L’aspect sculptural des corps des anges à l’aide de forts contrastes entre ombre et lumière, ainsi que la composition aux multiples figures s’inspirent de l’art des Procaccini.
