This charming little angel, made of terracotta and with traces of polychrome, probably comes from a bas-relief. Characteristic of the 15th century Lombard, this sculpture is halfway between a still latent Middle Ages and an already brilliant Renaissance. If the length of her fingers suggests a Gothic plastic tradition, the expressiveness of her face, the beautiful curls that surround her face and her high forehead are nevertheless proof of her search for a new aesthetic. With her arms crossed on her chest and her deep gaze, this angel radiates great piety combined with the sweetness of the finesse of her features.
The treatment of our angel's face and hair curls is similar to the work of an anonymous Italian artist from Quattrocento, called "Master of the Angel Choir". While the work of the wing feathers seems more similar to a terracotta, preserved at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon.
