Description
Elegant Christmas cards reproducing two tempera and chalk drawings c.1706 by Florentine artist Antonio Franchi, Il Lucchese (1638-1709); now part of the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Depicting angels and a putto holding an ornamental banderole, the drawings are thought to have been designs for pendentives above the altar of a chapel within the church of San Frediano at Castello, near Florence. Putti – or cherubs – were revived as a sacred symbol in the art of the Renaissance, becoming especially popular in Baroque art, symbolising the abiding presence and eternal love of God.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
