Two Child Angels, Symbolizing Patience and Industry
Federico Zuccaro (Italian, about 1541 - 1609)
Pen and brown ink, brush with brown wash, over black chalk
17.5 × 41.8 cm (6 7/8 × 16 7/16 in.)
Allegorical figures of Wisdom and Diligence stand on either side of an empty circle that Federico probably intended to contain an emblem, such as the sugar loaf belonging to the Zuccaro family. On the left, the small cherub representing Wisdom holds a shield and spear. A head, perhaps that of the goddess Minerva, decorates the shield. Another cupid on the right, signifying Diligence, holds a spade from which sprouts a bunch of grain and a shield decorated with a spider web.
