    ANGELS

In Vittorio Mazzucconi’s painting,angels have been a recurring theme, a long time before they ever became fashionable. Nobody knows whether true angels or merely a artist’s soul and ours. At the time of the Descent there were no encounters with any angels in Mazzucconi’s paintings, but only demons.

  Man does not wish to see, nor does he wish to hear, nor does he wish to receive Grace. At times, he is a sleeping, dormant being, intermingled with terrestrial reality, with whom the Angel seeks to speak, but in vain. Finally, Grace descends upon him, as beautiful and tender as a loving woman. But again, he seems to draw back, or barely seems capable of even showing her a hesitant welcoming gesture.
