No other image of angels has inspired such acclaim as this, Sistine Cherubs by Raphael Sanzio. No other version captures the soft tones and classical lyricism of these charming cherubs like our adaptation. You can confidently display them in your home and delight in the truthful translation of their unearthly charm.
As part of the larger composition known as the Sistine Madonna, these delightful angels epitomize Raphael’s unsurpassed poetry. Here, the young Raphael captured the innocence of youth with a sublime confidence. Representing a renaissance understanding of beauty that directly connects the human and the divine, the charming angels were painted in the artist’s signature style. The much acclaimed original is now housed in the Gemaldegalerie in Dresden, Germany.
