It is a pair of wooden sculptures, the work of a nineteenth-century Venetian area carver, depicting two full-length carved angels, standing on a naturalistic base in lacquered wood made like a rocky terrain, characterized by pleasant grace and realism in the movement. The works, thanks to the high decorative value as well as the ideal proportions, were perfectly adapted to small tables-consoles, in the following era.
The structure of the carving as well as the subject recalls the glitz of some works by the Venetian engraver Andrea Brustolon (n. 1662 - d. 1732), especially known for his exuberant Baroque style furniture, whose inspiration was influenced by the years spent in Rome, where he was exposed to the sculpture of Bernini and his contemporaries.
Returning to our two pleasant sculptures, it is the work of one of those carvers active in the Veneto region during the nineteenth century, who worked precisely in the wake of the great success of Brustolon. Among all we mention Valentino Besarel (1829 - 1902) or Vincenzo Cadorin (1854 - 1925), considered one of the leading exponents in the context of the Venetian neo-baroque revival and beyond, inspired by the works of contemporary carving.
The works are in excellent condition.
Like all our works, they are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
