Themed visits



Angels

Zurbaran, L'Ange Gabriel © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

Since the Middle Ages, angels have assisted, consoled and accompanied biblical characters. Gabriel announced to Mary her coming motherhood and an angel often brought the palm of martyrdom to virtuous Christians. Before his fall, Lucifer was the favourite angel, and Cabanel painted him as a disturbingly beautiful young man. Cupid, Eros, and putti are always the companions of Venus and any love story. Though they have wings and are often pudgy, they are not angels.
