✿ Michael John ANGEL ✿

'Seduta in anca
al tempo istante
di un avido

sguardo
e perdutamente tua
ora...'

~ Catherine La Rose ~
























Born in England in 1946, Michael John Angel emigrated to Canada in 1961, and moved to Italy at the beginning of 1989. In the late 1960s, he studied in Florence with the renowned Pietro Annigoni, who introduced him to the techniques of the old masters. Mr. Angel is now regarded as one of the foremost figurative painters, and his paintings and portraits hang in both public and private collections on both sides of the Atlantic. While he has few peers in portrait painting, where his commissions read like a Who’s Who of corporate North America, Mr. Angel’s real passion is painting myths and allegories. Since the 1980s, he has been concentrating on these, painting murals and altarpieces in a number of churches and villas in Italy and for private collections in the USA.
