putto che suona

Preserved in the Tribuna of the Uffizi since 1605, it has long been believed a single painting until thanks to a reflectography it was discovered that it was part of a larger painting. It portrays a winged boy lying on a leatherback almost largest then him, he's playin it with an expression that sounds committed and absorbed. The touches of red on the wings, on the cheeks and on the nose brighten the colors in the scene for the rest pretty dark. Very special are the curly unruly hair of the angel: a whimsical touch of the painter.
