For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
The French call angels depicted in civic architecture putti if they are chubby babies, génies if grown adults, and les amours (the loves) for almost anything in between. This charming girl amour is one of a pair decorating the first story of a handsome residential building, circa 1865. Set on a broad, tree-lined boulevard named after the great 18th century historian, philosopher, writer, and wit Francois-Marie Arouet, better known by his nom de plume, Voltaire, she delicately embellishes the landscape.
Posed in a graceful oval cameo embellished with sprays of flowers , this feminine angel holds a T-square, an essential tool of architects, high on her shoulder as she poses demurely entwined by a ribbon of drapery.
