Kaitlyn Davis IGE 120 Sandra Posey October 17, 2006 Monument to Mignard The painting I choose was a European, 18 th century, piece that contained, what looks like, angels and cupid upon a pedestal with a demon above them with a scaffold. I don’t hate this piece. I feel it is very beautiful, but I do not understand it. I understand that there is the conflict of good versus evil, and how evil can be present, but not seen. The “saints or angels” are seen to be looking elsewhere. The artist is trying to show how great and invincible they are in the eyes of God. They are also being shown in a light. The artist has painted them to be God like creatures. The kids are not looking the same way, but to themselves. Maybe to show that they are still vulnerable, and that they do not understand the difference between good and evil. Now there is also a swan with one child and I feel this also shows purity of all four of the “angels or saints”, because of the color, but also because of how the swan is placed in his arms.
