Once again with the born angel Antonello, an angel of mercy to Messina where he lay, we have his unfinished Cristo morto sostenuto dagli angeli, c. 1475, Museo Correr, Venezia, of angelic worth. You feel he could not get to finishing this painting while still with us, perhaps he took it to Heaven with him upon his death. Continuing the duty of the angel of mercy, almost the opposite extreme of Dantesque Hell, so no divan redemption for life's punishments simply a divine grace for the Lord. The nomination of three gracing angels to take his soul to Heaven while Christ lay death in the crypt, would be too sweet for anyone. The painting almost looks contemporary, unfinished, as though the three angels and Christ are all of nominated angelic worth to God. Ephemeral with angelic duty as you would imagine most people do not see angels walking amongst them, even though they do. Most artists who nominate Christ in their artwork do feel they have led the life unto him and premise God by the Holy divine angelic order of Christ or Christian philosophy in the first Testament unto him. Upon viewing the painting you feel yourself dissolve unto him and humans would want to hide in the crypt. This beautiful angel takes you unto God. God have mercy on the angel of mercy. Angel wings to the angels.

Albrecht Durer gives us the angel of genius with his Melencolia I (Melancholy), ca. 1514. As if leaving instructions for a divine translation several indications nominate the angelic name Melencolia I. The little putto takes notes as if transcribing angel speak into a message for the human heart. Everything on display in this print appears to take you to divinity and the Holy divine. Almost like the information and Gods divine law have already ascended to the Heaven of the heart. Gods moved house. The hourglass nominates Heaven, the scales, the human weightlessness of an angel or divine thought, the mourning bell over the magic square feels to communicate the hour of this. Divine geometry or the scale of the heart is noted with the polyhedron and the sphere giving us the mathematical premise of God. The divine angel of Melancholy wears sacred cloth and represents with her compass a dark contemplation of the divine angel of love.

Paul Klee was attributed to in a really beautiful angelic exhibition of the Holy divine called Making Visible, in London. A really appropriate name for making his Holy order of God visible. These delicate small paintings brushed your cheeks as if by angel wing with his musical understanding of composition. Composition was the Holy angel. Attributing his Platonic love philosophy to paper and canvas and a divine contribution of the Holy divine with angel wing rendering of compositional practice. If he were to be a music composer you would feel the musing of angels. His usage of colour in palate is completely of the colourist tradition of early 20th Century art that would have influenced him in view. You, premise feel his understanding of God by ascension up the Swiss Alps, their understanding of God and where your spirit goes at death, is very Swiss and reminiscent of Giacometti whose whole oeuvre was of a similar angel. God must have planted Swiss people next to a snow peaked mountain range to teach them about ascension via the angel of God. When you listen to Giacometti talking about his work, you feel like you must have missed somewhere with an understanding of God as all he ever speaks about is the composition of death and the disintegration of the soul to matter. Paul Klee gives us a similar angel of ascension with colour.

Antonello da Messina gave us as if by angel wing, The Dead Christ supported by an Angel, c. 1475-1476, now housed in the Prado Museum in Spain. Magnificently painted with human rendering Christ is surrounded in the Virgin's veil and the angel is mourning the passing of his spirit to Heaven, the angel has a divine golden cloth around her chest to support her heart from his human element. The divine angel was sent by God to ascend Christ to happiness. The earthly grief on the ground from his passing spirit would make anyone weep. Her ascendency to God is nominated in the Holy divine colours of ascension via her wings and death is contemplated by the presence of a skull in the left hand corner of the painting while the view of a pristine understanding of Jerusalem because of Christianity flanks the right. Unfortunately other remnants of the crucifixion litter the ground. This was a contemplation of the 1st Century of Christianity, when Christ was born. The painting makes me weep from sadness.

Andrea del Sarto made a visit to the Pitti Palace blessed by angels. With the painting Annunciation, 1528, mother Mary is given a message by an angel sent by God. His angelic wings of the angels closest to God feel like his earthly presence would appear more of the colours of ascendency than have a human countenance but this would be Gods communication to the Virgin Mary's heart. The garden of the heart would feel Gods message and be taken to Heaven there. Angels of God only appear when the divinity of the Holy divine has the most angelic purpose. The angel is human. Christ was sent to us by God to understand the love the angels place in our hearts and why God is love. Love takes you to Heaven and God takes you to love via the angels wing. The orange colour Andrea del Sarto gave his angel in this painting nominates his ranking. God love the angels who love God.

Dame Barbara Hepworth offers her divine marble goddess self with a miraculous contribution from the Holy divine called Three Forms, 1935, at the Tate Britain in London. Both Hepworth and Moore had a similar upbringing in country England. This involved looking at several ancient rock sculptures left behind by the Celtic tradition and a divine understanding of the circle as form was their contribution to God. This hollowed out space equalled the womb of a woman but after birth. Moore and Hepworth both contributed to this divine understanding through their Modernist sculpture. Three Forms was an early sculpture of Barbara Hepworth and as though to invert this philosophy of God equalling the goddess by birth would be the echo of her womb, nominated the triplets her womb produced as if by a premonition of her Holy birth. Several people do mention the mother and child image when communicating about Moore and Hepworth, they were talking divinity about the Holy divine and one could almost describe their philosophy as being like an Early Christian notion of the Mother and Child image. The mothers three of this beautiful contemplation of the self as goddess offers a really special message about God. Her work takes you to stardust. God bless Barbara Hepworth.

Triumph of the Virtues, c. 1502, by Andrea Mantegna is the painting for the goddess. Represented here by many earth goddesses, we have Daphne, Minerva, Diana along with Pans, a Centaur and other gods nominating Vices. This is looked over by God with St. John, Mary Magdalene and the Virgin Mary in a circular cloud in the sky. This is a commission by Isabella d'Este for her studioli and premise Andrea Mantegna appears to have fallen in love with her in the garden, with beautiful winged cupids among peach groves to nominate her beauty of divine wealth. Diana seems victorious with this. Such a glorious garden is represented for the water nymphs and the turret of vine leaves appearing to have grown over a water duct represent the watery flow.
