Full details on

The proposed painting, which represents two angels musicians, is a work by a master Caravaggesque at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
Caravaggio's recollections are evident, especially in the clear contrast of chiaroscuro, with the two angels standing out against the dark monochrome background, a pictorial expedient that reinforces the three-dimensionality and emphasizes the volume of the bodies, illuminated by a beam of intense light.
Among the many painters who have followed the teachings of Caravaggio, there is one in particular that deserves to be mentioned in connection with the work in question. This is the RomanGiovanni Antonio Galli (Rome 1585 - 1651), called "Lo Spadarino".
In fact, his particular pictorial style and his figurative repertoire testify to obvious affinities with our beautiful canvas. In particular, it could be included in the vast production that the painter devotes to the cherub tree theme of his career. His angelic figures are always described with a particular attention to the psychological aspect and are distinguished by a graceful sensitivity, full of sweetness.
A stylistic peculiarity of Galli, which we find fully in our two little loves, is its particular atmosphere full of magnetism. The cherubim, portraits with strong expressiveness, are able to involve and captivate the spectator.

The canvas is in an excellent state of preservation, enhanced by a uniform craquelè, and a rentoiled, professionally executed in the twentieth century.
