"Angel with a lute"

DUCKOMENTA original :

Oil on canvas, 400 × 500 mm

 

One document suggests that angels are rather vain.They loathe portraits in which their cheeks are puffed out unflatteringly to blow into an instrument. For three years, from 1521–1524, Rosso Fiorentino negotiated with this angel, until he finally came up with the right instrument for his subject: a lute.

"Duck with a pearl earring"

DUCKOMENTA original :

Oil on wood, 250 × 200 mm

 

A mere 37 surviving works by Jan Vermeer van Delft can be verified as having been realised by the artist. This oil sketch was found in the safe of a local savings bank in Delft. His impoverished widow probably used it as collateral for a loan.
