Rennaissance Cherub

October 6th, 2010 by katielloyd

I am always fascinated by the faces of children. They can look so different from one moment to the next. During this photo shoot of a family with three children this little girl looks her age sometimes, and at other times she looks tremendously grown up.
I’ve selected this picture because she looks as though she has come from a fresco of a chapel painted in the 15th Century.
Also attached is a clip from a painting of Tobias and the Archangel Raphael, which dates from the 1470s by a follower of Andrea del Verocchio the Florentine painter of that period.
