Angels in Art

They are seldom represented before Constantine's time; the oldest fresco in which an angel appears is a 2nd-century "Annunciation." The winged angel does not appear until the 4th century. At first angels were not represented unless historically necessary but after the 5th century they become favorite subjects, and were painted as attendants on the principal figures of a picture.
