Even in his day, Fiorentino was a recognized master of a subjective style of painting that imbued the classicism of Raphael and Michelangelo with personal expression and visionary intensity. In this lovely design, the sympathetic angels frankly delights us with it’s Venetian sense of color and voluptuous texture. In paintings such as these, Fiorentino forged a new decorative legacy, earning him the title of Mannerist Master.
