'The more materialistic science becomes, the more I shall paint angels: their wings are my protest in favour of the immortality of the soul' - Edward Burne-Jones. After an introductory essay discussing angels in 19th-century art and culture and, in particular, their roles in Pre-Raphaelite and Symbolist art, Ruth Langenberg presents over 60 reproductions of paintings of angels, from Blake's monumental Angel of the Revelation to Chagall's Archangel Michael carrying Adam back down to Earth.
