Parmigianino's faces


An angel from Madonna with the long neck (1535):


An unidentified girl from Antea (1524, survived everything, including Austrian salt mines):

Albeit one can argue that the resemblance is due to the stricture of the mannerist canon (see the earlobes, for example), this is undoubtedly the same face.

A discovery no less thrilling even though I am definitely not the first to make it.
