Photohunt ~ six

The photohunt for this week is 'six'.
This is Madonna of the Red Angels (1400's), an oil by Giovanni Bellini. (not of the bellini drink fame) It is at the Galleria del Accademia in Venice. I was moved by the unique use of color.
and the fact that there are 6 red angels.
Happy Hunting Y'all!

Oh I'm so glad you got to go to the Accademia when you were in Venice. I love that painting and those sweet little angels. :)

I agree the colors are vivid and my first time to see red angels I used to see white ones. Happy Sunday!

Awesome pic for the theme - those red putti (I agree about the unusual colouring) would be great with your fancy red shoes.

Gorgeous painting, Sandi. The museums in Italy are all filled with treasures.
