What are angels? William Blake maintains he saw one in Peckham, but few people have been blessed with such a revelation. This book looks at 28 paintings from medieval times onwards in the search for answers. The angels depicted include the glowing beings painted by Fra Angelico, as well as the innocent creatures depicted by Rossetti. Works by Leonardo, Botticelli, Grunewald and Bellini are also included. The accompanying narrative explains the paintings, and what each angel is doing, as well as providing biographical information on the painter. Some of the pictures are shown in their entirety, others in detail only.
