“Little Angel Playing Lute” is very famous oil on panel (39×47 cm) by Rosso Fiorentino, painted in 1521 and housed at the Uffizi Galleries in Florence. It is part of an altar piece that has been lost and depicts a cute little angel strumming the strings of a lute. Very tender image, with the little angel who is struggling to master the lute which appears to be exaggeratedly large in comparison, the painting shows the original reinterpretation of a traditional theme.
