"Puttos: The Cherubic Figures of Artistic Delight" Step into the world of art and be captivated by the enchanting presence of puttos. These angelic figures, often depicted as chubby infants or young boys, have graced numerous masterpieces throughout history. From religious paintings to grand architectural designs, they have become an iconic symbol of beauty and innocence. In St. Luke Painting the Virgin, 1602, we witness a tender moment as a putto observes St. Luke capturing the divine grace of the Virgin Mary on canvas. Their delicate features and ethereal aura add an otherworldly charm to this oil painting on panel. Venturing outdoors, we encounter Vasca dell'Isola's Oceans Fountain adorned with captivating putto statues in front. These playful cherubs seem to come alive amidst cascading water, bringing joy and serenity to all who behold them. Moving indoors, our gaze is drawn upwards towards the vaulted roof of St. Agnes Church in Cawston captured in a striking black-and-white photograph. Here, intricate details intertwine with celestial motifs while puttos dance across the heavens above us. Radnor House presents another mesmerizing sight - a baroque ceiling that transports us back in time through Giles Worsley's lens. This monochromatic image reveals an opulent display where puttos cavort amongst elaborate ornamentation; their presence adding whimsy and elegance to this lost treasure from England's past. The Five Senses lithograph showcases how artists embraced these cherubic beings as they personified sensory experiences such as touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound – each represented by a delightful putto engaging with various objects or instruments. Even renowned scientist Galileo Galilei was not immune to their allure; his copperplate engraving portrays him surrounded by celestial spheres guided by none other than mischievous little angels -puttos illuminating his path of discovery.
