About this artwork

Ferretti was the most outstanding painter of Florence during the first half of the eighteenth century. Educated there and in Bologna, he became one of the most prolific fresco painters in Tuscany. This study for the church of Santa Maria Maddelena de’Pazzi, with its fluid strokes and subtle washes that evoke convincingly plastic angelic forms, reveals Ferretti’s place in the tradition of great Florentine draftsmen.
