DESCRIPTION:  These bright, vivid panels of angels in adoration are likely to have been painted around 1600, and almost certainly formed part of a now-lost painting or altarpiece. In their colouring and understated elegance, they show the continuing influence of Santi di Tito on Ciampelli’s art, and may be compared with such paintings as a Christ Appearing to Saint Martin of Tours in the church of Santa Maria del Pianto in Rome, one of the few commissions awarded to Ciampelli by Pope Leo XI before his untimely death.

Similar angels appear in a number of Ciampelli’s paintings, such as The Death of Saint Anthony Abbot, signed and dated 1612; one of several works by the artist in the church of San Giovanni dei Fiorentini in Rome. The facial types may also be compared with figures in Ciampelli’s painting of The Baptism of Christ, formerly in the Galleria Corsini in Florence.
