Fra Giovanni Angelico Prints

 Item
Identifier: 80-9-WAM-271

Scope and Contents

A collection of 6 wood-framed color prints. They are 14 1/4" x 6 3/4" with an arched top. The images are 5 angels (one per print) playing musical intruments with the following captions: Te Deum laudamus! Laudate Dominum! Soli Deo Gloria! Cantate Domino! Pax Vobiscum! Gloria in Excelsis! Two of the items have the notation Fra Giovanni Angelico on the reverse. Two items have the notation Fra Beato Angelico. And one includes the following text: There is, in the Uffizi Gallery, Forence, a large tabernacle, with doors that close executed by Fra Giovanni Angelico, (1387(?) - 1455). Within the [Linaioli] tabernacle is a picture of the Madonna with the Infant Jesus upon her knee. Twelve little angels, playing upon different instruments, are painted about the edges. The work is not by any means Fra Angelico's best, but the charming figures of the angels, graceful in form, and attractive in color, have made them very popular. Acc. #: 80-9-WAM-#271-#276
