Free Angel Pictures
When looking at these Free Angel Pictures, it's interesting to note that during the first three centuries of Christianity, the representation of angels was not permissible. Angels pictured in the illuminated manuscripts and the mosaics of the fifth century were crudely depicted.
Until the tenth century, angel pictures were curiously formed, and more curiously draped. In the earliest pictures of angels the drapery was ample, and no unusual attitudes, no insufficient robes, nor unsuitable expression was seen in such representations so long as religious art was at its best. White would be the prevailing color of angelic drapery, but delicate shades of blue, red, and green were frequently employed with wonderful effect. The Venetians used an exquisite pale salmon color in the drapery of their angels, but no dark or heavy colors are seen in the robes of angels in the pictures of the old Italian masters. The early German painters, however, affected angelic draperies of vast expanse and weighty coloring, embroidery, and jewels.
