Description

The half-length representation of the Angel, by the hand of a very young Raphael, represents a fragment that must have been part of a larger altarpiece, depicting the Coronation of St. Nicholas of Tolentino. The events that brought the work to Brescia are extremely complex: Paolo Tosio, a well-known collector from Brescia, managed to buy it, with the certificate of authenticity of the Florentine Academy, in 1822 - 1823. At the time the painting was known as "Portrait of young man ”and was already attributed to Raphael. In 1912 Oskar Fischel, a profound connoisseur of Raffello, with a brilliant intuition identified in the "Portrait of a young man" the face of the first angel on the left of the large altarpiece with The coronation of San Nicola da Tolentino, painted by the artist for the church of Sant'Agostino in Città di Castello. Immediately, the painting underwent restoration and the removal of a layer of dark green paint from the background revealed the presence of the wing and other elements relevant to the original composition.
