Angels, or angel-like beings, have appeared in art from around the world for millennia. Though intrinsically a religious concept, they seem to also represent a universal ideal of purity, benevolence and beauty and so have cried out to be represented in art. In this beautiful book, the reader is taken on a journey from ancient Byzantine images to the classical angels of the Renaissance and the romantic and poetic creatures of Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite art. Full-page artworks are accompanied by fascinating text.
