Ciao Italia – A little angel makes a big noise

This famous image is a painting by Rosso Fiorentino entitled “Angelo musicante”. I saw it today at the Uffizi Gallery. We see this little cutie in many forms – posters, mugs, inspirational books. It’s telling that when I googled it – more art poster sites came up than scholarly websites. Like the “Mona Lisa”, it has become a commercial property in a way that the artist could never have imagined.
