Angel (fragment of the Baronci Altarpiece)

Oil on wood, 31 x 27 cm
Pinacoteca Tosio Martinengo, Brescia

The study for the Baronci Altarpiece shows only a single angel, but a partial copy of the altarpiece from the 18th century in Città di Castello, and a description written in 1789, prove that pairs of angels stood on either side of the main figure. The angel shown here was on the right and was not looking at the saint in the centre but at a figure on the edge of the picture.
