Artwork description from the museum (© Copyright - Art Institute Chicago -

This female angel is one of many that Abbott Handerson Thayer painted during his career. Originally a painter of animals, Thayer created portraits and then allegorical figures like this example after training in Paris. The artist wrote of his seraphic subjects, “I have put on wings probably more to symbolize an exalted atmosphere … where one need not explain the action of his figures.” Other late 19th-century artists such as Augustus Saint-Gaudens also represented angelic female figures to personify what they perceived as the virtues of women. In Winged Figure, Thayer mixed this idealism with a level of naturalism, particularizing the woman’s features and giving her form a sense of mass and gravity.

The artpiece with the title "Winged Figure" was painted by the painter Abbott Handerson Thayer in 1889. The 130 year old artwork has the following exact dimensions 130,8 × 95,9 cm (51 1/2 × 37 3/4 in). Oil on canvas was used by the American artist as the technique for the work of art. The painting has the following inscription: signed in lower right: "Abbott H. Thayer/ 1889". This artpiece is included in the digital collection of Art Institute Chicago. We are happy to reference that the artpiece, which belongs to the public domain is provided, courtesy of Art Institute Chicago. : Simeon B. Williams Fund. Moreover, alignment of the digital reproduction is in portrait format and has a ratio of 1 : 1.4, which implies that the length is 29% shorter than the width.
