1898. Angels and archangels, cherubim and seraphim, and all the glorious hosts of heaven were a fruitful source of inspiration to the oldest painters and sculptors whose works are known to us, while the artists of our more practical, less dreamful age are, from time to time, inspired to reproduce their conceptions of the guardian angels of our race. Contents: archangels, Michael; archangel Gabriel; archangel Raphael; guardian angels, angel choristers and adoring angels, demons and evil spirits; pictures of angels as authorized by the scriptures; pictures which illustrate both scripture and legend; angels in pictures of the Virgin Mary. Copiously illustrated with over 34 angelic representations.
