A highly decorative 17th-century oil on panel depicting an angel with a harp. This enigmatic little piece carries the weight of its 350 year history and it bears the marks of many owners.
It’s plausible that originally it was created as a piece for private worship and perhaps once hung in a small building occupied by a devout family.
The painting is fixed into a handmade frame, which is probably from the period.
