Oil on Wood of Angel with trumpet in gilt gothic frame
A Grand Tour copy from Florence, Italy, circa 1890, of an angel blowing a trumpet by Fra Angelico in oil painted on wood with a gilt background in a gilded wood Gothic frame. The angel is garbed in dark gray vestments with gold stars and edging. His tunic splits at his feet to reveal bright red and blue undergarments. His wings are gold with blood red droplets. His trumpet is short, more of an English horn than a trombone. Around his head is a halo incised into the gilt wood. Condition of painting is excellent. The frame is in very good condition with minor losses to the tracery around the gothic arch over the angel and minor losses and splits of the gilding. The bottom piece of wood has been lost. On the back is a faded label which says: Valdinoci, Firenze, Via del Fossi, N7. Size of the frame is 21" long by 7.5" wide at the bottom.
