Artist's description:

PLEASE NOTE: This painting ia a modern variation on the cherub featured in
Raphael's Sistine Madonna, painted by Pop Artist Randal Huiskens.
It should in no way be confused with an actual work of art by Raphael. In 1512, the artist Raphael was commissioned to paint a Madonna for the Sistine Chapel. The final work was truly a masterpiece, but the most enduring characters in the painting were not the Madonna, Saint Sixtus, or Saint Barbara, but the pair of cherubs included at the bottom, looking up. These two figures have permeated popular culture for centuries, becoming classic Pop Art subjects. And now, I have completed variations on these figures in my own painting style. This work of art is acrylic paint on archival quality stretched canvas that is 16" in width, 16" in height, with a stretcher depth of 1.5" -- it is fully stretched, with no staples on the side. It is an original work of art, not a print or reproduction. It is sold unframed and is ready for a suitable framing of your choice. The sides of the painting are painted black for easy and immediate display. The painting is signed on the front by the artist. Please note that colors may vary slightly from the actual painting due to variations in my camera and your monitor. Painting is carefully shipped with postal insurance and includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist. Note: This painting ships from the U.S.A. - International Shipping (outside USA) is USPS Priority Mail - buyer is responsible for any extra customs charges, taxes and duties.
