Flight of Angels, Two Holding a Large Feather, Taddeo Zuccaro, c. 1556 - c. 1558
Taddeo Zuccaro garnered fame in Rome with his frescoes on the exteriors of city palaces. Regrettably, almost all of them have been lost. However, we can gain a good impression of their former splendour through his drawings. This elaborate sheet is a design for a spandrel, the triangular space between the outer curve of an arch and the rectilinear boundary of a niche, framework or ceiling.
