Passerotti, Bartolomeo (Copy Michelangelo (Michelangelo Buonarroti))

Two semi-nude Putti Embracing, One Male and the other Female

1560 - 1570. Pencil, Pencil, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper Not on display

The motif of two putti, one male and one female, standing in pairs derives from the decorations on the fronts of the thrones on which the Prophets are seated in Michelangelo’s fresco decoration of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. This pair is freely adapted from the panels of the throne to either side of the Prophet Zacharias.
