Johann Carl Loth si educò all'arte nella bottega familiare, il padre era pittore di corte dell'elettore di Baviera e la madre dipingeva miniature.
Intorno al 1655 l'artista giunge a Venezia. Nella città lagunare Loth aderì immediatamente al gusto naturalistico e tenebroso di Giovanni Battista Langetti, per poi ammorbidirne i toni intorno agli anni Settanta, e nella tarda maturità esprimere un sentimento più languido, con tonalità meno contrastate e composizioni che risentono del barocco romano.
Al settimo decennio si inserisce la tela in esame, che di alta qualità e bellissima conservazione, attesta come gli eccessi espressivi langettiani si attenuano e il pittore sembra aggiornare il proprio stile in similitudine con il suo allievo Daniel Seiter (Vienna, 1642 o 1647 - Torino, 1705). .

Baroncelli polyptych, c.1334. Tempera and gold leaf. Another great master of the Duecento: Giotto (1267-1337) with a detail picture of (yet!) more angels playing music (perhaps I’ve got a fixation on the angeli musicanti?) pertaining to the Baroncelli Polyptych, which includes The Coronation of the Virgin, placed in the Baroncelli Chapel, Santa Croce, Florence.

This row in the polyptych depicts kneeling angels playing music in an environment of fully-packed figures (saints and more angels). For the execution of this work, which entails many figures and details, Giotto must have surrounded himself with a good group of outstanding disciples, since at that time Giotto already had a prosperous and renowned workshop in Florence.

Renaissance angel study---I think this is DaVinci? And of course, a neon halo. #neon #fluorescent #sketchbook #oldmasters #davinci #angel #halo #renaissance #pencildrawing #blacklight

Now on view: SPECIAL GUESTS | Meet Petronella; her portrait is one of two recently rediscovered paintings that were acquired by The Leiden Collection. Here we see our registrar taking a closer look at her face. The painting surfaced on the art market in 2017, following decades of its whereabouts being unknown. It was painted in 1635, a busy time for Rembrandt.
.
Although it bears his signature and is known to be the pendant of a fully attributed painting of her husband, Philip Lucasz (National Gallery, London), in 1989 the Rembrandt Research Project suggested that it was probably painted by an assistant. New research has led us to think differently. Rembrandt painted the work himself, but rather more loosely and swiftly than we are used to seeing.
