Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Maurice Berkeley, his sister Mary Berkeley, Blackheath and thence by family descent to Florence Layard, M.C.B., 1884 (according to an old label on reverse)

    The present composition relates to the lower left hand section of Pasinelli's drawing, Singing Angels seated on Clouds, which is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (see A.C.Dewhurst, Lorenzo Pasinelli, Rimini, 1993, no.89, fig. LXXXIX, p.351). The drawing is inscribed on the rear of the old mount with the words: 'Frammento di Lorenzo Pasinelli/per l'opera alle stampe intitolato/la Musica'. The catalogue entry for this drawing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art reads as follows: In this red chalk drawing of angel-musicians Pasinelli reveals himself the faithful disciple of his first master Simone Cantarini. The old Italian inscription is correct, the putti in the drawing were used, differently grouped and reversed, in Ippolito Maracci's etching after Pasinelli, Concert de musique exécuté par plusiers anges sur un nuage (Bartsch, XXI, pp. 210-211, no.1).'
