"Raphealesque Putto" 11" x 14" oil on board, by Juliane Porter
Please enjoy my most recent oil of this unbelievably darling little Raphealesque Putto. Putto (singular for putti) is Italian for a work of art depicting a nude, sometimes winged, child angelic being, usually male, represented in Renaissance paintings by such greats as the painter Raphael and sculptor Donatello. In the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God. Putti, in the ancient classical world of art, were winged infants believed to influence human lives. I absolutely adored painting this incredibly special little guy.
